Respite Care

In-Home Respite Care In Vancouver

We understand that family caregivers take pride in the care they provide to their loved ones, but the physical, mental and emotional demands can be overwhelming at times. Caregiving is a demanding, difficult job and no one is equipped to do it without some level of support. Recruiting some occasional help is essential for your health and the health of your loved one. It can sometimes be difficult to maintain your resilience when you decide to ask for help in the form of in-home respite care, but it is critical for your loved one’s well-being.

Senior In-Home Respite Care provides breaks from the daily routine of caregiving. It helps to relieve stress, restore energy and promote a healthy and necessary balance in your life. Whether it’s for just a few hours every day or a few days at a time you can count on us to provide the support you need so perhaps you can finally take that well-deserved vacation. Safe Care Home Support is proud to offer some of the highest quality in-home respite care in Vancouver.

Studies have shown that not only is respite care beneficial to caregivers, it is also very beneficial to the health of the care recipient. Respite care provides an increase in emotional and mental health – recipients are more interested in social activities and interaction and are happier on a day-to-day basis.
