Respite Care for Adults

Millions of Americans provide unpaid assistance each year to elderly family, friends, and neighbors to help them remain in their own homes and communities for as long as possible. Sometimes these caregivers need time off to relax or take care of other responsibilities.

Benefits for Family Caregivers

This is where respite care can be helpful. It provides the family caregivers with the break they need, and also ensures that their elderly loved one is still receiving the attention that he or she needs.

Respite care is a benefit to the caretaker as they will be able to:

  • Attend family activities
  • Accept career opportunities
  • Spend time with others
  • Be able to work late
  • Have more opportunities for vacation and personal time
