Caregiving for someone with Alzheimer’s or dementia is physically and emotionally demanding. It is normal to need a break. Utilizing respite care can strengthen your caregiving abilities by giving you time to re-energize, refresh, and take care of yourself before returning to work at full capacity.
WHAT IS RESPITE CARE?
Respite care refers to a person’s short-term stay at a care community. Respite care is an option for recovery from hospitalization, assisted living trial periods, and caregiver vacations or temporary breaks. Emergencies, unplanned situations, or unexpected trips can also create the need for an alternative caregiver.
In the case of a person with Alzheimer’s or dementia, the circumstances require specific care. Respite care services give people with Alzheimer’s and dementia the opportunity to interact with others having similar experiences, spend time in a safe and supportive environment, and engage in activities designed to match their personal abilities and needs.
