If you’ve devoted yourself to the care of a disabled adult, you know that continuous custom care is important. All full-time caregivers—whether caring for a spouse, partner, child, or friend—need a break every once in a while. We know how hard it is to take that break: you need to be confident that you can trust whoever is stepping in to provide the same level of care that you provide.
What is respite care?
Respite care provides short-term relief for primary caregivers. More than 50 million* Americans are caregivers, providing care to an adult or child who is chronically ill or disabled and putting themselves at a higher risk of physical and mental exhaustion. Our respite services are specifically designed to assist full-time caregivers: we learn and continue routines to keep your loved one well and content when you have to step out. With in-home respite care, we can step in for the hours or days you need us to ensure continuous quality care.
Karma Care can arrange daily, weekly, or biweekly in-home respite care visits so that primary caregivers can take the physical and emotional breaks they need and deserve, while knowing that their loved ones will be properly cared for in their absence. Respite care can be arranged as a regular service, or on an as-needed basis.
Examples of Respite Care
Our respite caregivers provide the same kinds of services as our other caregivers, but we take the time to learn the patterns you’ve established for continuity of care. At Karma Care, we promote client wellness with a holistic approach that includes mental and emotional wellness: that includes trying to minimize the anxiety that caregiver change can cause for a client who is chronically ill or disabled.

What are the benefits of respite care services?
When primary caregivers need breaks, are going on vacation, have work or other obligations, or simply need a day off, they want to make sure that their loved one is properly cared for in their absence. After all, looking after a loved one who requires in-home care is often a 24-hour job. Our respite care services assist with these home health care needs so you can relax, knowing that complete, compassionate care is being provided when you are away.
To someone providing primary care around the clock, having a trusted, trained caregiver to step in to give them an occasional day (or afternoon) away is priceless. If you know someone who is a primary caregiver who is not able to take time away from their caretaking duties, please connect them with our respite care services.
