Respite care is a special name for a short-term break for caregivers. When you look after someone who is sick or disabled, it is a 24-hour job. You need a break from time to time to look after your own needs. That is where respite care can help.
Your breaks can be as long or short as you need them to be. You can set up respite care for a few hours, a day, a few days, or a few weeks.
Who Needs Respite Care?
Someone who has an illness or disability may need care around the clock. Caregivers sometimes need time to rest and relax, go on vacation, shop, go to appointments, work, or exercise.
You might use respite care if you oversee someone who has a condition like
- A brain injury
- Alzheimer’s disease or dementia
- A stroke
Respite care at home
If you care for a loved one at home, respite care can come to you.
In-home respite care providers may act as companions for someone who is sick or elderly. They keep them company and make sure they are safe.
