Respite Care

Respite care provides relief for family members who are unable to provide health care for loved ones during times of stress, illness or other unexpected circumstances, such as changes due to the aging process, cognition impairment and chronic illness.

Respite care has been shown to have positive effects on the mental and physical health of caregivers. Respite care helps to reduce stress and physical exertion and it diminishes the risk of the caretaker becoming overwhelmed by circumstances that are beyond his or her control. By sharing the caretaker role, a more consistent level of elderly health care can be achieved right at home. Having respite care can help to put off the need to transfer the loved one to a permanent health care facility.

Institutional Supplementary Care

Bytowne Home Care Services extends beyond the family home and is also offered to individuals who reside in a retirement or assisted living residence. If you or your family must be away or have less time than you would like to visit, our Institutional Supplementary Care service will ensure that a complete home health care plan is in place. We will customize our services to work with your loved one’s existing support system, environment and needs. De-cluttering,  downsizing or moving? We can help with that too!
