Respite care for family caregivers


Respite care gives hardworking family members a much-needed break from the daily routine of caregiving. Whether you need a few hours away or an extended vacation, respite care gives you time to refresh and recharge while having peace of mind that your loved one is in good hands.

Having a support system of trained professionals on deck makes caring for loved ones more manageable – and sustainable. First and foremost, it reduces the physical and mental exhaustion of caregiver burnout. It also relieves stress, restores energy and promotes a necessary life balance.

We understand that both giving and finding care for a loved one can seem overwhelming. We also know that you want to provide the best care possible. Our flexible approach supports a temporary/short-term schedule or a more routine weekly, biweekly or monthly schedule.

For many families, there is a feeling that only a family member can provide the proper level of home care for a loved one. Family members sometimes rearrange significant portions of their lives to adapt to family needs and can be successful for a period of time. But generally, the demands of care begin to introduce challenges that can easily be eliminated when supplemental care with a highly qualified SYNERGY HomeCare caregiver is retained. Being an integral part of your family is our main desire. Everyone needs help, even family caregivers, so let SYNERGY HomeCare help to restore normalcy to your family with professional respite care in Chicago and the surrounding cities.
