Respite

Provides temporary relief time for the regular or primary caregiver (spouse, child, relative) of an ill, frail, infirmed, functionally impaired older individual or dementia patient that requires constant in-home care.

The purpose of respite care is to:

  • Prevent, delay or avoid premature or unnecessary institutionalization.
  • Prevent elder abuse.
  • Prevent or reduce physical and emotional stress on the family.
  • Give the primary caregiver some much needed personal time away from home and the caregivers role.
  • Prevent caregiver burnout.
  • Give the caregiver an interval of rest from the burden of constant care.
