Respite Care

Respite care involves temporarily relieving the primary caregiver of their care responsibilities. It can be arranged for a short term e.g just an afternoon or for several days or weeks at a time. Respite care allows caregivers time to take care of their own needs and health care e.g exercise, run errands, spend time with their children, spouses or friends. It is essential for the caregivers physical and mental health.
