Short-Term Care

Home Health Care Assistance for Short-Term, Supplemental Care

Offering Flexibility in Hours, Services and Staff

You may not have made a career choice that put you in the healthcare field, but you may find yourself providing home healthcare services to a loved one. Over 67 million Americans provide home healthcare for a family member or friend, while 36% of those look after elderly parents. This is a labor of love that many children and other relatives take on, but it can be come stressful to balance your regular responsibilities with caretaker duties.

If you opt to care for a loved one at home, you want to make sure that you have the support you need to care for yourself as well as a person who is ill or elderly. Caregiver burnout can become a major issue if you neglect your own needs and have no relief from the physical and psychological burdens of caregiving.

Whether you need to get away to recharge or just need short-term help managing health needs for yourself or someone else, respite services from SelectCare offers a great solution that assures ongoing client care.

My 89-year old mom landed in the hospital with an ankle fracture. She ended up in rehab after that, but had to return to the hospital due to complications. Upon return, she was diagnosed with Covid-19. As she was not presenting with any symptoms, the hospital deemed her well enough to return home, especially since they needed the bed for other Covid patients. As we needed 24-hour care, we reached out to many home health care providers, most who did not respond. SelectCare literally came to our aid, providing exactly the care and support we needed. I can't say enough about this group of aides and nurses. They are personal, caring, wonderful human beings. They were in constant communication with us about everything that was needed for my mom. They were proactive ensuring she was well taken care of. This was hugely important for us given we live in Massachusetts and with the Covid condition, could not be with my mom. Even in her passing, they stayed connected with us, helping to take care of final needs. If you are looking for elder care, look no further. These people are amazing!
