Respite care provides relief for the caregiver. In many families, an elderly person is reliant on the care of his or her family. In some cases, this may be a minor amount of care – such as helping around the home. In other situations, the care is comprehensive involving all levels of personal management. Yet, family members get tired, too. They need a break. Sometimes they need help on a day to day basis. In other cases, they need someone who can provide care for a period of time while they travel or just take some time to themselves. Respite care provides caregivers a temporary rest while the resident receives 24 hour care in a safe environment.
Respite care can include as much or as little care as possible. This type of flexibility helps caregivers to maintain the best level of care for their loved one without sacrificing their own mental health for it. We offer respite and short term alternatives, with advanced notice and payment arrangements.
