Respite Care

What is Respite Care?

Caring for a loved one at home can be rewarding but as day-to-day life unfolds, sometimes there is a need for families to avail of a care home for a short-term stay for their loved one, known as respite. Respite can be arranged in a variety of planned or unplanned circumstances such as unexpected emergencies, competing priorities, time constraints or it may be a case of the individual in need of care and the caregiver at home simply needing a break from each other.
