Taking a Break
It’s a job of love and loyalty but can quickly reach a state of burnout if the caregiver is setting aside their own well-being to care for their loved one.
Caring for someone who is elderly or disabled comes with significant demands and often a break from that responsibility is needed.
It’s important for caregivers to take a break now and then. A quality support system is the key to maintaining the high level of care you provide your loved one day in and day out.
At Home Care

Types of Respite Care
Weekly or monthly scheduled respite care gives you a predictable break to plan your own appointments and meetings, visit with friends or just relax alone. Whether you need us for a few hours every day, or one day a week, Arista is happy to work with you to be sure your loved one is cared for in your routine absence.
Life is unpredictable and you just never know when something unfortunate could occur. CareConnect is available to step in as a caregiver at the moment you have to step out. Planning ahead and having us on standby can minimize the level of crisis and emergency presents.
It’s not always an emergency but any unforeseen obligations could arise requiring a need for alternate care for your loved one. Out of town trips, vacations, or just knowing you have a Plan B is what CareConnect provides.
CareConnect services are often covered by private pay and long-term care insurance.
Additionally, veterans and their spouses may qualify for VA funding. Our basic rate is $20/hr. however this rate can be slightly lower or slightly higher depending on the complete care plan that’s developed based on the specific needs of each client.
This rate is highly competitive within our local market.
Our caregivers are bonded and insured to make sure we provide the highest possible level of care for your loved one.
We take our responsibility to provide competent, experienced in-home senior care seriously. If you are a primary caregiver needing to be away from your loved one for any reason, contact CareConnect today.
