What Is Respite Care And Why Is It An Essential Part Of Senior Care?

BrightStar Care’s Respite Services In Montgomery County Provides A Higher Standard of Care
 
Respite and family relief are an essential part of the overall support that families may need to help keep their aging family member with a disability at home. The word "respite" means to take a break from the daily challenges of caring for a child or a parent with special needs. It can be planned for a few hours or for as long as a weekend.
 
Respite Care at BrightStar Montgomery County / Bethesda / Silver Spring, has top ranked senior companion care services focused on improving the health and well-being of your aging loved ones so they can get the most out of life. We strive to get to know our clients’ unique histories and personalities so we can plan activities that will be both stimulating and enjoyable.
 
BrightStar Care can provide many levels of companionship that your family member might desire to achieve a quality of life you need. Companionship is a key part of senior care, not just because companions provide assistance with daily tasks such as housekeeping and personal care, but also because they provide a meaningful human connection that greatly improves quality of life. Here are some of the benefits of why BrightStar Care companionship for seniors is number one in the industry.
 
Our Respite Services Include:

  • Assisting with writing letters and correspondence
  • Helping connect with loved ones through email and social media
  • Engaging in stimulating activities such as crafts, games, and reading
  • Creating customized grocery lists in accordance with dietary needs and preferences
  • Facilitating visits with friends and neighbors
  • Planning outings and trips
  • Most daily scheduled assistance

Each BrightStar Care client receives a personalized, in-depth assessment conducted by our RN Director of Nursing to better understand their condition, personality, and environment. This information is used to create an individualized plan of care that meets each client’s unique physical and emotional needs, strives to improve their health, and enhances their quality of life.
 
This process, along with continual oversight by our nursing staff, helps us ensure the right fit between our clients and their companions, and enables us to quickly modify a client’s plan of care as their needs evolve.
