What exactly is Respite Care?

Respite care is specifically designed to address these concerns; caregivers can find responsible, helpful, short-term assistance that is readily available and ready to work with them, step into their shoes, and temporarily assume caregiver responsibilities so you can take a much-needed break. While there are numerous types of respite care available, the most common types of in-home respite care are as follows:

  • In-Home Care Respite Services

    • For obvious reasons, in-home respite care is the most popular type of respite care. This allows the respite care provider to learn the patient’s natural environment and routine, allowing them to provide the highest level of service and care. A volunteer or a family member can provide in-home respite care, but the most comprehensive and effective respite care is usually provided by a caregiver from a professional home care agency. These home care workers have been properly trained and have experience providing the type of care your loved one requires. Respite care services can range in duration from a few hours to overnight and can be arranged directly or through Right Choice Home Care. This popular respite care option allows the patient to remain in their own home, giving them a sense of safety, security, and comfort.
  • Emergency Care

    • In the best-case scenario, the caregiver will have plenty of time to plan ahead of time and will be able to adequately prepare for interim caregiving. However, this is not always the case; emergencies happen to caregivers as well. This is why Right Choice Home Care of Chicago specializes in providing emergency short-term respite caregivers.
  • Services for Adult Day Care

    • Every now and then, you may require the afternoon off. Perhaps you have a doctor’s appointment, a business meeting, or a soccer game to attend. Temporary adult day care may be the answer for those times when substitute care is required. Adult day care is a type of temporary in-home care provided by Right Choice Home Care that can help bridge the gap for many families by providing a safe and nurturing environment for the patient during the day so that the caregiver can go to work, a meeting, or a school function and feel confident that their loved one is being cared for in a safe, comfortable, and familiar environment.

Their assistance has been handy when we have needed it, and I have not had to worry about my spouse while I was... attending to other responsibilities. I'm in desperate need of the time off I receive with them. The caregiver who visits our home is dependable and keeps me informed on what is going on at all times. Priceless!read more

The members of the Right Choice team are fantastic! The scheduling, billing, and, most importantly, caregiver training... are all excellent. My parents have been able to stay in their own home thanks to the caregivers' attentiveness. When it comes to meals, bathing, physical therapy and medicine reminders, my parents receive assistance as needed. In addition to that, I've been able to keep track of daily activities and have had no problems with billing. Thank you, Right Choice, for giving me peace of mind knowing that my parents are receiving high-quality care while still being able to keep their freedom.read more

As my mother-in-law's Alzheimer's increases, Right Choice Home Care has been a lifesaver for both my wife and I. We're... both soothing her, and we thought we were capable of caring for her. We looked for places that would give her compassionate care at the end of her life. We never expected her to be so well cared for as her ability to function deteriorated. She is now quite comfortable, and she is kept clean, safe, and entertained with compassion and patience. In an ideal world, Right Choice Home Care would be the gold standard for Alzheimer's care for a loved one. We will be forever thankful to them.read more

I met Nurse Kristine. She played a very essential role in saving my dad’s life. She was very personable and super... compassionate and very attentive to his condition. Kristine used humor to keep our spirits up. She definitely went well beyond what the average nurse does simply because she has a heart of gold. Thanks for all the help and support we got from the beginning to end.read more

My husband and I had just moved to the state of Tennessee to help his mom get around properly and safely, and not even... a month after she got diagnosed with alzheimers. I got set up with this service and that’s when our lives were changed. Right Choice has some of the best alzheimer's experts in the nation. The staff treats everyone with the most respect and support. His mom loves the changes she is making and we wouldn’t want it any other way. Thanks Right Choice Home Care!!read more

A care giver from Right Choice (I won’t mention her name because I don’t want to embarrass her) was there with my mom... up until she passed on. She thought highly of her and looked forward to the times she was there. You were so kind to her and for that we all consider you family. Thank you for being there. I imagine Right Choice Home Caregiving selected you because they only want caregivers that embody what they represent. Again, thank you.read more
