Home Respite Services: Support You Can Count On

At ameriCARE Pittsburgh, we recognize the difficulties that can come with being a part- or full-time family caregiver of a loved one. It requires a lot of dedication and planning, and at times, it may feel impossible to trust the responsibility to someone else. But you need to take care of yourself, too, and that’s where our team of expert caregivers can step in to provide home respite services. You can hire an in-home respite caregiver to take over care shifts as needed to help free up your schedule while ensuring your loved one is receiving the best care possible at all times.

our respite CARE in Pittsburgh offers services that include:

help with managing complex needs

Whether managing a temporary health condition or caring for someone through chronic illness or hospice, we have plans in place to help bring our in-home caregivers up to date quickly so you can take the time you need to rest and recover. During our discovery process, we will review your loved one’s needs, what you’re doing now to manage the situation, and explore ways we can help improve care and find ways to get you the much-needed breaks you deserve.

Respite Care and In-home Care Services

one-time support when you need it

We understand that needs can shift quickly, and sometimes, clients need one-time or short-term support, which is why we do not require you to book a minimum number of hours for any given shift! However, based on our experience, shifts under four hours can be more difficult to fill. Given this, and in order to secure the best help possible, we offer a premium short-shift rate to encourage fulfillment.

providing much-needed RELIEF

It is important as a caregiver to take breaks when needed to rest and recharge. As part of our respite care services, ameriCARE employs highly qualified and compassionate caregivers who can provide flexible respite relief for those essential self-care breaks.

Our caregivers can step in and provide the care your loved one needs, allowing you to take time for yourself to rest, go to work, or spend time with your family and friends. Our respite care services provide caregivers time to restore, reset, and relax while putting themselves first.

It’s always better to prepare ahead of time to ensure you give yourself adequate breaks while providing care for a loved one. Work with our home respite care team to create a schedule that works for you.
