What is Respite Care?
Respite care services offer the option for scheduled visits. Perhaps this is a recurring weekly or monthly break, giving you time to focus on your own needs. We offer flexible scheduling options designed to work for your needs. Respite care services can also be scheduled on an as-needed basis. If something comes up or an emergency arises, we’re available to step in and help provide support for the elderly person in your care.
Caring for a loved one requires tremendous commitment and often takes a toll on caregivers. Rest assured, Simply Compassion’s superior in-home care workers deliver compassionate and professional care when you need it the most.

Putting off Respite Care
There are many reasons why caregivers may put off scheduling respite care. Perhaps:
You feel that requesting respite care makes you selfish or a bad caregiver
You worry about the quality of care your loved one will receive while you’re away
You have trouble asking for help
You feel personally responsible for the health and wellbeing of the senior in your care
You are seeking approval or respect from other family members
You feel you don’t want to break a “promise” made to loved ones
Many caregivers put off respite care for these common reasons. While these are valid concerns, failure to ask for respite care may cause a worsening situation. To be the best caregiver for your loved one, taking care of your own needs is a must.
Benefits of Respite Care for Caregivers
Think of respite care services as a tool. It is a tool that allows caregivers to be the best versions of themselves. By taking care of yourself, you’ll help enhance your caregiving duties. Here’s how caregivers can benefit from respite care:
- Take a break to focus on personal well-being. This includes healthy eating, restful sleep, time to exercise, and more.
- Strengthen your relationship with friends and family. Take time to participate in social activities that are not part of your caregiving role.
- Spend time on hobbies or activities that bring you joy and happiness
- Learn to relinquish control
- Feel renewed, refreshed, and ready to reapproach your caregiving role with fresh eyes
- Prevents burnout
- Allows you to maintain a better attitude when providing care
