What To Know About Respite Care

Caring for a loved one is often a demanding, round-the-clock job. Without necessary breaks, a family caregiver puts their own mental and physical health at risk. Respite care offers a chance for the caregiver to prioritize self-care, knowing their loved one is in the trusted care of a professional. That way, the family caregiver can return refreshed and rested.
