Being a caregiver is more than just a full-time job–it’s an around the clock commitment. We know that you want to ensure your loved one gets the best possible care, but you have to be careful not to burn yourself out by trying to do everything alone. Having an elderly loved one in need of constant care can mean there’s little time in your life to take care of your other family members–or of yourself.
That’s why we developed dedicated services for giving family caregivers a break. In-home respite care was designed to allow you anywhere from a few hours to a few days a week to go to the bank, make dinner for your family, or take a nap–whatever you need to do to relax a little and fill your tank back up.
All of our caregivers are highly-trained in-home aides and they are supervised by a registered nurse, so you never have to worry about if you’re leaving your loved one in good hands.
How Much Does In-Home Respite Care Cost?
The cost of respite care in Arkansas depends on several factors. In some cases, a certain number of hours of in-home care may be covered by Medicare if your loved one qualifies and their application is accepted. Medicaid can sometimes be used to fill the gaps not covered by Medicare.
