Respite Care in Wrightsville Beach, NC 

Wrightsville Beach's Preferred Respite Care Choice

It’s very common that primary CAREGiversSM feel weighed down by all of their responsibilities. Providing all of the caretaking needs for a loved one can be physically, mentally and emotionally exhausting. Often the primary CAREGiver can be so focused on providing the best possible care for their aging family member that they do not see the obvious signs that they may need relief. Whether or not the primary caretaker realizes it, this difficult situation can lead to a great deal of mounting stress that can result in their own mental or physical health problems.

It’s the temporary service we provide to your aging family member that allows you some time away to rejuvenate.

Respite That Caters to Your Needs

Sometimes your senior family member may need a break from their primary caretaker as well. In many cases, the family member enjoys the presence of a new and engaging CAREGiver that is there to assist them with any of their caretaking needs. Whether it’s just a brief visit while you go shopping, or to the grocery, or even a trip out of town, we make it convenient for you to step out when you need to with our flexible scheduling options. We provide respite care in Wrightsville Beach twenty-four hours a day and seven days a week. Here are some of the most common senior in-home care services we provide:


Companionship Care:

Most seniors enjoy visits from a new friend and helping them accomplish tasks and enjoy favorite activities is good for seniors’ health. We can play games, visit neighbors, watch movies or plan activities, whatever is most helpful for the senior and their family.

Home Helper Services:

Receiving help with home tasks that are more difficult for seniors is often crucial to allowing seniors to continue to live in their home. Plus, our home helper services free up time for family caregivers to spend more quality time with their loved one. Home Helper services include cleaning, laundry, shopping, running errands and helping however we can.

Personal Care Services:

Having an outside caregiver help with personal care such as bathing, dressing and mobility helps preserve important family relationships and preserves the dignity of the senior. Our trained CAREGivers treat each senior with the utmost of respect in all personal care matters.

Alzheimer’s Care:

Our CAREGivers are specially trained in our award-winning Alzheimer’s Care program and can work with seniors and provide the assistance and encouragement to help them cope with the challenges of Alzheimer’s.
