Respite Care

Respite Care | Take Some Time for Yourself

Respite care is a service provided by Senior Home Companions that supports family caregivers by providing a break for an afternoon appointment or a multi-day or week long vacation.

According to AgingInPlace, in the past five years, over 40 million family caregivers provided 37 billion hours of care for loved ones. And half of adult caregivers say it’s moderately or very difficult to balance work and caregiving

Does your family have a respite care plan in place? Senior Home Companions is proud to facilitate friendly and compassionate respite care for families in Southwest Florida and Central Indiana, whether planned, emergency or temporary.

Taking time for yourself is important, especially when you are the dedicated primary caregiver for a sick, aging or disabled loved one. Respite care gives you a break from the hands-on responsibilities of caring for a loved one.

Florida & Indiana Respite Care

Whether it’s a few hours once a week to go to the grocery, get to appointments, have dinner with friends, or more time away for a vacation, Senior Home Companions makes it possible for you to have time away. Moreover, you can expect the same high caliber of services and caregiver referrals to the same exceptional caregivers as within our in-home companion care division.

    My brother and I are very pleased with Darleen and her genuine and sincere commitment to Mom’s welfare. Mom can have her cranky moments but Darleen knows just how to play her. Thanks to SHC for all the help with my mom.

    I want to thank all of you for your “above and beyond the call of duty” attention and the extra time spent and visits with my 100 year old mother. She knows your names and smiles when she sees you. That is major! Also, I would add, the quality and dependability of your caregivers is exemplary.

    This is a better Christmas because of the beautiful caregivers in our life! Not sure what we would do, or where would be without them! I would like to let you know how easy it has been to work with your staff. On the phone, online and with Pat and Mikki, at Mom's. It's seamless. Much appreciated.

    Senior Home Companions has played a huge role in the care of my mother. Besides regular weekly care, whenever we have had an unexpected emergency, SHC has always been there to help and provide all the additional services necessary for her care.  Your representatives have been professional, kind, and able to deal with a variety of situations.

    My mom would have never been able to stay in her house for as long as she has without your help. Don’s flexibility and driving was a real lifeline for Inge.

    Mac was wonderful. She stayed until well after they took him away. She was extremely helpful in getting things organized. Ralph was also a tremendous help yesterday. He is so caring and gentle. I just can’t say enough good things about your staff. Thank you again for all you did to make Nelson's last days on this earth easy for him.

    I'd like to thank Dante for going beyond the call of duty. She transported the client to the hospital ER and stayed many hours beyond her shift until the patient was admitted. She made phone calls on behalf of the client and fetched personal things and brought them to the hospital. We so appreciate her good care!

    This company has gone above and beyond in providing care for my husband at the last minute. They have been super friendly & supportive at a very difficult time. They are flexible to handle a myriad of needs. I am so impressed with their professionalism and compassion. I will recommend them to anyone. If you need a home companion/caregiver, these are the people to call.

    SHC took care of my great aunt when she had some health issues. The staff was phenomenal in their care. My aunt told me that she loved their friendly and uplifting personalities. I would highly recommend the trustworthy people of this organization for taking care of my family and friends in the future.
