What is Respite Care?
Respite care can be a life-saving step for the long-term caregiver. Caregivers have an abundance of responsibilities which cannot be ignored.
When the caregiver needs a rest, respite care can provide care for the patient. Sometimes this can be arranged through in-home services. Sometimes it may be a hospice facility or assisted living facility or church volunteers.
The need for 24-hour care can be exhausting and frustrating for the patient. Seek assistance from trustworthy and skilled professionals. Getting a break for rest and relaxation is essential for the mental and physical health of the caregiver.
Most respite care services will assist with transportation in addition to the routine activities of everyday life for the patient.
