Respite Care

Respite Care

Provided by a licensed Home Health Agency

A study conducted by The National Alliance for Caregiving and AARP estimates that 34.2 million Americans provide unpaid care for an older family member or friend. Caregiving can often be a 24/7 job, causing caregivers to run the risk of burning out and neglecting themselves.

Moon River Senior Care and Transportation is committed to offering family caregivers support. Our professional employees provide respite care services to give you time to attend to your own needs while having peace of mind that your loved one is receiving superior care. We work with you to develop a plan of care to accommodate the family caregiver and the person receiving care, whether you need regularly scheduled assistance or services on an as-needed basis. Our agency can also provide live-in care if the primary caregiver needs to be away.

Moon River Respite Care includes more than a “sitter.” We focus on your loved one’s quality of life and assign a caregiver who has the personality and skills to engage with the client. It may be taking a walk, listening to music or browsing through photo albums. The plan of care is designed to meet the individual needs and preferences of your loved one.

“As always we are grateful for Moon River and all the wonderful people who help us keep going.” -Helen K.
