What is Respite Care?

Home care agencies use respite care as a support system for family caregivers. This allows your loved one to receive care from a professional caregiver around the clock. Respite services ease some of your family’s burden, allowing family members to navigate their busy lives with the peace of mind that their loved one is being cared for in full.

These services can drastically reduce stress for any of the over 40 million Americans acting as their family caregiver. Family caregivers are more prone to physical and mental exhaustion, a term described as “caregiver burnout.”

Remove the risk of burnout entirely and make caring for your loved one more manageable. Regardless of how many days a week you need our help, we’ll step in to allow you the time to recuperate and take care of yourself. We can arrive at your loved one’s home daily if needed, providing regular visits, especially for those with developmental disabilities.
