Lincoln County Opportunity Company, Inc. offers short-term in-home respite care service for unpaid caregivers in Lincoln and Wayne County, WV. This program is designed to provide a little relief for family members who are providing full-time care for frail, older family members with medical and/or behavioral issues.

Why Respite Care?

Caregivers NEED a Break

Caring for an elderly, ill, or frail loved one’s needs can be a real challenge. Over time, caregivers may find it difficult to find the time to take care of their own essential responsibilities. When expending significant amounts of time and energy serving the continual demands of a senior with special needs, the toll can be tremendous on the caregiver, other family members, and the senior, as well. Respite care provides the opportunity for caregivers to get a necessary break.

Caregiver Relief So You Can Rest & Recharge

Respite care services are not optional for long-term caregivers; they are essential. It is important for those caring for the comprehensive needs of an elderly family member to be able to complete the tasks necessary to take care of themselves, as well as their other family members. Our in-home respite services enable caregivers a period of time to do grocery shopping, pay bills, or simply take a few moments to remember that life exists beyond their caregiving duties. By offering valuable time to take care of essential chores, rest, and recharge, our respite support program enables caregivers to better cope with the emotional and physical toll of providing full-time care. Our respite care providers also lend a sympathetic ear to caregivers who may be facing significant social isolation.

While you are getting caught up on other responsibilities, our compassionate respite caregivers will take care of your loved one. Whether you need to reconnect with family or friends, attend an event, or simply take a break, our compassionate, professionally-trained staff can help relieve your stress and worries.
