Respite In-Home Care is temporary care to provide family caregivers relief from the full-time care they have been providing for a loved one. Caregiving is a demanding job and no one should have to do it alone. Our respite care can provide home health care, giving family caregivers a well deserved break.
How does it work?
At Steadfast Home Care in the greater Northern Virginia area, respite care can be arranged on a temporary basis with no obligation to continue home services once we are no longer needed. Respite Services can be for a few hours, part of a day, overnight care, several days or even weeks. Contacting us for respite services enables your loved one to remain in their own home while they continue to receive care. This can be invaluable for you, as the primary caregiver.
Our caregivers are available to assist with Home Care Assistance such as meal preparation, shopping, and housekeeping. We can also provide Personal Care services which assist with daily living activities such such as bathing, toileting, dressing, or feeding.
