What Is Respite Care?, Lincoln, Nebraska

Millions of families in the United States choose to care for their aging loved ones themselves instead of relying on a nursing home or assisted living facility. This allows seniors to live comfortably in their own home surrounded by familiar faces. However, when family members become overwhelmed with their caregiving duties or bogged down with other life demands, they might need temporary respite care. Keep 'Em Home Personal Care Services provides in-home, respite care services to families in Lincoln, NE, from a few hours a week to several weeks at a time.

How To Choose A Respite Care Service

First, ask your loved one if they have any specific requirements for the person who will be helping them out. Next, make a list of everything that will need to be taken care of in your absence. During this time, you should decide if the respite caregiver will need to have any special qualifications to perform the job correctly. Finally, set up interviews and involve your family member to ensure they are comfortable with the person who will be taking care of them.
