Respite Care

What is Respite?

Respite care is short-term or temporary break for caregivers who take care of family members at home. Sometimes it may be beneficial to both the patient and the caregiver to have a short break from the home situation. Respite may also be provided during an emergency.

A message regarding COVID19 from CARE GIVING BY KATHY

We have been monitoring the Coronavirus carefully, and prior to the increase in cases, we began taking precautions, such as the use of 70% alcohol-based hand sanitizer, limiting physical contact (ie handshaking), sterilizing, etc. We take our role in the community seriously and try to make every effort to ensure our clients are taken care of but also that our Care Givers are safe as we enter our clients’ homes.

It is imperative that we begin to implement additional precautions for the safety of our community, staff and clients:

1.) If you are sick or have been exposed to the Coronavirus, please cancel your appointment by calling us at 860-785-8832

2.) Please avoid physical contact with our Care Givers during the time of the appointment. We will greet you with a warm smile, but not a handshake at this time.

3.) Please wash your hands with soap and water for 20 seconds prior to our arrival for our scheduled appointment. With your permission, our Care Givers will wash their hands as well. Please instruct them to do so, otherwise they will use the company-provided hand sanitizer. We have utilized masks when in clients’ homes, also all our Care Givers wear clean gloves as an additional precaution.
