Comfort Keepers Respite Care At Home in Metairie, LA
Comfort Keepers of Metairie, LA provide respite care at home so you can rest, recharge, or focus on other important matters.
Caregiving can be a rewarding and bonding experience within a family, yet in even the best situations, the responsibility and ongoing routine can be stressful and tiring—especially when balanced with a job or caring for children.
When family caregivers are emotionally drained, they are likely less effective at playing this critical role. Comfort Keepers® can provide respite care at home or temporary relief to those who care for family members who might otherwise require permanent placement in a facility outside the home.
Many seniors are incredibly independent - and rightfully so. They have spent decades taking care of themselves, their families, and other members of the community. When family members decide to take senior care upon themselves, it is no small task.

We know that oftentimes as care is provided to your senior loved one, your own health may slowly decline, or regular every day tasks may go unattended. If this is the care then Comfort Keepers of Metairie, LA are here to provide respite care at home to you or your loved one. Contact us if you believe that you could benefit from our respite care at home services!

- take care of the errands you never seem to have time for.
- catch up on your shopping.
- attend a support group meeting.
- visit doctor or dentist for routine care.
- give yourself a much-needed rest.
Comfort Keepers respite care at home can be scheduled for as little as a few hours a week. Additionally, around-the-clock care can be arranged so you can take a longer break to attend a wedding out of town, take a child to college, or go on a much-needed vacation.
