What is Respite Care?
Respite care is short-term care designed for adults with special medical needs. Respite care ranges from a few hours to overnight and extended stays. You can utilize respite care services as frequently as you need without a commitment to a particular community.
The Benefits of Respite Care
Caring for a loved one at home is rewarding, but it can also be challenging to balance their needs with yours. The stress of providing home care can affect your work productivity and take an emotional and physical toll on your entire family.
Respite care provides home caregivers an opportunity to work, run errands, clean, or even take a much-needed vacation.
There are several benefits to respite care:
- Reduced caregiver strain, stress and associated mortality risks
- Improved family dynamic and function
- Improved physical and emotional health for caregivers and respite care recipients
