Respite Care and In-home Care Services

temporary support for family caregivers

At ameriCARE San Francisco, we recognize the difficulties associated with becoming a part-time or full-time family caregiver for a loved one. It requires a lot of dedication and planning, and, at times, it may feel impossible to pass these responsibilities on to anyone else. But you need to take care of yourself, too, and that’s where our team of expert caregivers can step in. You can hire a in-home respite caregiver to take over care shifts, as needed, to help alleviate your schedule and to ensure your loved one is receiving the best care possible, at all times.

our respite CARE services include

helping manage complex needs

Whether managing a temporary health condition, or caring for someone through chronic illness or hospice, we have plans in place to help bring our in-home caregivers up-to-date quickly, so you can take the time you need to rest and recover. During our discovery process, we will review your loved one’s needs, what you’re doing now to manage the situation, and explore ways we can help improve care and find ways for you to get the much-needed breaks you deserve.

Respite Care and In-home Care Services

one-time support when you need it

We understand that needs can shift quickly and sometimes, clients need one-time or short-term support which is why we do not have a minimum number of hours needed for any given shift! Based on our experience, however, shifts under 4 hours can be more difficult to fill than longer shifts. In order to procure the best help possible, we offer a premium short-shift rate to encourage fulfillment.

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 in-home 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.
