Frequently Asked Questions about Respite Care

As the number one provider of non-medical home care in Rancho Cucamonga CA, Extra Hand In-Home Care is often asked about the services we lay out to clients. One of the services patients ask us is about our Respite Care.

So in this blog, we are going to discuss everything you need to know about this type of care. In doing so, we will be able to give future clients the assurance of this service and at the same time, give smiles on the faces of their primary caregivers.

What is a respite care service?

We define respite care in these descriptions:

  1. Temporary

    Respite care is temporary. It is given so that the primary caregiver of an older adult, child, or person with a disability can take a rest.

  2. Form of support

    It is crafted and perfected to provide care to patients whether they are at home or to be placed in an institution giving out such services.

  3. Quality care

    No matter what the difference respite care is in comparison to other forms of services, you can guarantee that it is given with quality.

Where will patients be taken care of?

Depending on the nature of business of the provider, respite care services can be provided either in a facility or in the patient’s own house. In the case of Extra Hand In-Home Care, we give our patients the privilege of being cared of at home.

The benefit of being in a respite care facility is that the client can be provided with things according to his or her needs in a suitable environment. But if the patient’s house is as suitable or even more suitable for his or her necessities, why need to go to a facility when there is no such place as home?

How can such service be beneficial to both the patient and his or her caregiver?

Patients who need assistance in living must be given all the care he or she requires. This type of care should be given 24/7. But because robots that can care for patients are not yet invented, one needs to be given a temporary care if their primary caregivers could not be there for them. Hence, both are given the utmost benefits when enjoying respite care services.

Can respite services be given during emergencies?

Given the nature of respite care as short-term care, this question needs to be asked. There are some cases where problems may arise without anyone ever expecting them. In this case, are respite services capable of being depended on?

The answer is yes. No matter when the emergency happened, whether it is in broad daylight or late at night, one could call for the said service.

Extra Hand In-Home Care is a provider of quality non-medical home care in Rancho Cucamonga CA. Given this fact, we offer the following services in our community:

  1. Veterans Care

    We provide care for the sake of those who had fought for our country and are now fighting for their own well-being.

  2. Companionship

    One thing older adults need is a companion who could share with them the perks and, at the same time, the drawbacks of being old.

  3. Dementia and Alzheimer’s Care

    Living with dementia and Alzheimer’s disease is like hell brought to earth. But all that can be changed once professional caregivers care for the victims of such condition.

  4. Surgery Care

    Going to surgery can be scary and going home from surgery is stressful. So be cared for by competent individuals whose goal is to provide you relief after you have had your surgery.

  5. Personal Care

    Older adults may disregard the importance of caring for themselves. This is all the more possible given the fact that their ability to move around becomes limited.
