“David comes once a week and plays checkers with dad. Not only does this give my mom a break, but it helps dad with his thought processing. David does an awesome job, which we appreciate so much,” shares a daughter of one of our respite care families.
Visitation provides short visits for socialization and longer visits provide respite relief for family caregivers. By going to the home, the visitor allows a person living alone some companionship or if they have a caregiver, the opportunity for relief while they run errands or simply need a break. This experience is enriching for both the volunteer, the person needing visitation, as well as the family caregivers. A home assessment will be conducted before this service is arranged.
