What Is Respite Care?
Respite care at home involves planned or emergency services being set up to bring temporary relief to the family caregiver.
This temporary relief allows the family caregiver to take time to recuperate or focus on life’s other demands such as children, school, or personal goals. Being well rested and having balance also brings more stability to the family unit.
