Respite care provides short-term, temporary relief for those who are caring for loved ones. It is especially helpful when you may need to leave town and need a safe, compassionate place to care for your loved one.
Respite Care Benefits:
Respite care is a necessity for both you and your loved one.
Respite gives you time to take a deep breath, rest and relax.
Respite brings a variety of interpersonal relationships into the life of your loved one.
After a respite, you will likely be more patient with your loved one instead of feeling frustrated or exhausted.
Respite care is not paid by insurances.
Medications that are used in the hospital while on respite are billed separately. The hospital cannot use your home medications.
