At SARA, we know that everyone needs a break. Family members need to go on vacation or a business trip. An aide may have an emergency and need to return home for a few days or weeks. Unavoidable meetings or appointments come up. Sometimes, the caregiver just needs a few hours to themselves.
A respite HHA or PCA can provide needed services to a family on a temporary short-term basis or for a few hours every week.
In-home care services can include:
- Companion services such as companionship and supervised activities
- Personal home and health aide services to provide help with bathing, dressing, toileting and exercising
- Homemaker or maid services to help with laundry, shopping or preparing meals
- Skilled healthcare services
