Caregiver burnout interferes with your ability to function. Burnout also raises your risk of chronic depression and other mental and physical ailments, from hypertension and flu to diabetes, stroke, or even premature death. Caregiver burnout is also a leading cause of nursing home placement when run-down caregivers become too depleted to manage caregiving demands.

Comfort Homesakes Respite Care Program offers relief for caregivers:
Caring for a loved one can be emotionally and physically exhausting. Respite Care provides a much-needed break for caregivers, allowing them to rest, recharge, and take care of their own needs.
We provide volunteers that will offer 1-2 hours per week of respite care.
