Short Term Recovery Services

Need Help Temporarily? We Have the Answer.

Sometimes a little extra help can make a difference in how soon patients can return home, and Second Family Home Care is ready to assist with any non-medical services needed. Our short-term recovery services are an outstanding solution that allows seniors or for that matter anyone, to recover at home following surgery, an illness or an accident. Second Family Home Care services can mean a shorter stay in a rehabilitation facility, and it’s proven that people rebound more quickly in the comfort of their own home.

Respite Care

Rest and Recharge

The role you’ve taken as a family caregiver is an important one. Your loved one and other family members depend on you. As the primary caregiver, not only do you deserve an occasional break, but also it’s really necessary so you can recharge your physical, spiritual and emotional batteries. It’s critical that you take the time to care for yourself — doctor’s appointments, regular physical exams, counseling sessions or support group meetings — to ensure you’re not getting rundown and that you’ll be up to the challenges of this daunting responsibility.

The caregivers of Second Family Home Care are ready to step in with the same considerate care and concern for your loved one’s needs so you can get away for any reason. Whether you need to shop, attend a child’s school event, go to church, get some much needed exercise or just have lunch with a friend, our respite care services allow you to relax and enjoy, knowing your family member is well cared for in your absence. Our respite care program is also a wonderful solution when you go on vacation, travel for the holidays, or attend an out-of-town event such as a wedding or reunion.

End-of-Life Care

We can provide comforting, end-of-life care for your loved one and assist the family during this difficult time. Our compassionate caregivers come to the aid of individuals who have been diagnosed with limited life expectancy. We help them and their families with emotional and moral support as well as helping out around the home and providing personal and companionship care – whatever is needed. Second Family Home Care can support the family directly or work in partnership with a hospice agency or medical provider to fully meet the family’s needs. Our ultimate goal is to help families make the most of their time together, helping to lighten the burden at a very difficult time. Through respite care, we give family caregivers needed rest. We can also continue to help after a loved one’s passing. Our caregivers help families deal with the loss and assist with tasks such as organizing personal items and moving belongings, or just simply being there to listen if family members need to talk.

Tailored to Meet Your Needs

Second Family Home Care can provide respite care daily, weekly or as needed. We are happy to arrange care for just a few hours, overnight or 24-hour care while you’re away.
