providing temporary support for family caregivers
At ameriCARE Birmingham, we understand the difficulties that come along with becoming a part-time or full-time family caregiver for a loved one.

But you need to take care of yourself, too, and that’s where our team of expert caregivers can step in. You can hire one of our dedicated, compassionate respite caregivers to take over your care shifts, as needed, to help alleviate your schedule and to ensure your loved one is receiving the best care possible, at all times.

providing much needed RELIEF
It is important as a caregiver to take breaks when needed to rest and recharge. ameriCARE employs highly-qualified and compassionate caregivers to provide flexible respite care relief for those much-needed breaks.
Our caregivers can step in and provide the necessary care to your loved one and allow you to take time for yourself to rest, go to work, or spend time with your family and friends. Our respite care services provide caregivers the time necessary to restore, reset, and relax, while putting themselves first.
It’s always better to prepare ahead of time to ensure you give yourself adequate breaks while providing care for a loved one. Work with our care team to create a respite schedule that works for you.
Our caregivers will step in to prepare meals, shop for groceries, monitor dietary restrictions, and provide assistance in promoting the health of your loved one while you take a break.
Our caregivers can provide much needed emotional and social support for your loved one so you can feel confident to step away and take care of your own needs.
If you don’t have the extra time to help the person in your care make certain appointments or run errands, that’s okay! Our caregivers can provide transportation while you manage other tasks.
Medical Appointment Support
Our caregivers can accompany your loved one to their appointment and help them, and you, understand any information or instructions their doctor may give them.
Chores can feel incredibly overwhelming if you are providing care for a loved one on top of your other responsibilities. Our caregivers can provide much-needed assistance with laundry, dishes, and clean-up so you don’t have to.
Our caregivers can help your family member with reading tasks such as reading a book, opening or reading mail, organizing paperwork, or mailing bills and letters to keep their administrative tasks on track so you can attend to your own.
Our trained caregivers can jump in and help your loved one with their exercise or physical therapy regimen to help keep them on track while you take care of yourself.
Our caregivers can assist with numerous pet services including dog walking, feeding, transportation and assistance with vet appointments, pet hygiene, and other pet services to keep you, your loved one, and their pet happy and healthy.
