For many, the challenges of caring for a loved one are a part of everyday life. Caregiving can be demanding. Seeking support and maintaining your health before you become exhausted, isolated, or overwhelmed is essential for your loved one.
Respite care is a critical part of the overall support that families may need to keep their child, parent, or loved one with a disability or chronic illness at home. Respite care comes in many forms; however, it is essentially sharing the responsibility for caregiving while also getting support for yourself in the process. As the name implies, it provides short-term breaks or periods of ‘respite’ from your daily responsibilities that help to relieve stress, restore energy, and promote balance in your life. We can provide respite care in our family type homes, or in the home of your loved one.
