What is Respite Care?
Unplanned situations or unexpected trips can create a need for immediate care by another caregiver. Respite care provides relief for caregivers.
A recent publication of Alzheimer’s Organization says “Everyone needs a break. Respite care provides caregivers a temporary rest from caregiving, while the dependent continues to receive care in a safe environment.” Caregiving is demanding — and it is normal to need a break.
