Respite Care in Rockford, IL and Surrounding Areas
Respite care gives you a break from providing care so you can rest, recharge, or focus on other important matters.
Caregiving can be a rewarding and fulfilling experience within a family, yet in even the best situations, the responsibility and ongoing routine can be stressful and tiring—especially when balanced with a job or caring for children.
When family caregivers are emotionally drained, they are likely less effective at playing this critical role. Comfort Keepers® can provide respite care or temporary relief to those who care for family members who might otherwise require permanent placement in a facility outside the home.
Why Use Respite Care in Rockford, IL?
Even the most committed family caregiver can overdo it and suffer from caregiver burnout. Caregiver burnout is when the stress and daily routine of providing care becomes overwhelming and has an adverse effect on health and one's life. Not surprisingly, the easiest way to avoid and prevent caregiver burnout is to take a break.
Respite care provides a caregiver that will continue to give your senior the same level of care they need. This allows a family caregiver to take a break and relax, take care of their own tasks around the home, go shopping, or spend time with family and friends. If you need respite care for a senior loved one contact Comfort Keepers today.
What is Respite Care?

How Comfort Keepers Can Help
Respite care services give you time to leave the home for a few hours or even a few days, knowing the one you care for is in good hands. This creates time to
- take care of the errands you never seem to have time for.
- catch up on your shopping.
- attend a support group meeting.
- visit doctor or dentist for routine care.
- give yourself a much-needed rest.
Comfort Keepers respite services can be scheduled for as little as a few hours a week. Additionally, around-the-clock care can be arranged so you can take a longer break to attend a wedding out of town, take a child to college, or go on a much-needed vacation.
