Giving the Family a Break

At MLS we understand the time, commitment, pride, and pieces of your heart that you’ve put into caring for your elderly parent, handicapped sibling, child with developmental disabilities, or ailing family member. The very best way for us to continue taking care of the people we love and care for is to take care of ourselves first. When was the last time you were able to window shop, take in a movie, plan a date with your significant other, accept an invitation to meet with friends for lunch, schedule a medical appointment for your own health and well-being, or plan a short vacation? Give yourself permission to recharge and relax, without worry or guilt, while our compassionate and professional In-Home Respite Caregivers step into your shoes for a short time to care for your loved one as if they were our own.

In-Home Respite Care takes place in the home where your family member resides. MLS Caregivers understand how critically important it is, to the well-being of those receiving care, that their daily routine not be disrupted and inconvenienced by unnecessary travel to a secondary and unfamiliar location for care. Our goal at MLS is to provide outstanding temporary non-medical care, companionship, and supervision in the very place where those in need of our care-giving services feel the most loved, at ease, happy, and comfortable. What better place for our caregivers to continue the excellent care that you’ve provided for your loved one than in the comfort of your or your loved one’s home.

Perhaps you’re considering In-Home Respite Care for the first time. At MLS we’ll work with you to develop an In-Home Respite Care Plan that will work for your particular situation and special needs because we believe that every person is unique and special and should be treated that way. There are so many ways that our MLS In-Home Respite Caregivers can assist your loved one. Our caregivers  help with personal care and hygiene, getting dressed, transitioning to a wheelchair, exercise, light housekeeping chores, meal preparation and so much more. Most importantly with MLS In-Home Respite Caregivers you’ll have peace of mind that your loved one is being treated with care, compassion, and kindness in your absence.
