Respite care is the ideal solution for seniors who are mostly independent. It provides the flexibility and customization many seniors need, helping them feel confident and comfortable while aging in place. Home Care Assistance of Knoxville, TN, offers one-on-one hourly care in a senior’s home. Clients and their family members work together with our competent Care Managers to develop customized care plans that best meet the senior’s exact needs. The care plan is reviewed regularly and easily adjusted so seniors are never left without necessary assistance, supervision, and support.
Our professional part-time caregivers are committed industry leaders with a passion for enhancing the lives of seniors. They can assist with a variety of tasks, including:
• Personal care and getting dressed
• Meal preparation
• Medication reminders

Respite Caregivers Form Meaningful Bonds with Seniors
Family members who rely on respite care for time away from their caregiving duties feel confident knowing Home Care Assistance professionals are in their loved one’s home. In addition to being qualified and trained professionals, our respite caregivers are individually matched with the seniors they care for. Our matching process considers personality traits, likes and dislikes, and other things the caregiver has in common with the senior. This process encourages respite caregivers to form meaningful bonds with our clients and often makes seniors more receptive to receiving the care they need.
Caregivers Are Trained to Meet Changing Respite Care Needs
As the care needs of seniors change, our hourly caregivers are always prepared to meet them. Home Care Assistance University provides ongoing training that keeps the entire team informed of the latest innovations in senior home care. All hourly caregivers at Knoxville Home Care Assistance receive culinary training, information on safe transfers and mobility, and specific training on our proprietary Balanced Care Method and Cognitive Therapeutics Method. These methods are then implemented into our clients’ care plans as part of our holistic and ever-evolving approach to in-home care.
