In-Home Respite care provides short-term relief for primary caregivers. It can be arranged for just an afternoon or for several days or weeks. Care can be provided at home so the individual can be more comfortable in familiar surroundings.
Respite care allows the caregiver some time off from their care-giving responsibilities. It can take the form of different types of services at the adult day care, or even short-term nursing home care so caregivers can have a break or even go on vacation.
