What is respite care?
Respite care is quite simply a short period where a care-giver gets some time off, and hands over responsibility as a carer to a care home or agency. Being a care provider for a family member, spouse or partner can be exhausting, and it’s vital that you get some time off, for both your own mental and physical wellbeing and also in order to be able to provide the best care possible.
Respite care at home
For many people who require care and support, it can be comforting for care to take place at home. If the primary carer needs a break, or has other responsibilities, they can often be put off from considering respite care if it takes place at a secondary location. That’s why respite care which takes place in the home can be a popular option. It provides the carer with a much-needed rest but allows the person being cared for to remain in a familiar environment.
How long does respite care last for?
Respite care can cover anything from a few hours to a few weeks. It may be that you have an appointment or responsibility that is incompatible with your care schedule, or you may be looking to go on a much needed holiday. Caring for a person with specific needs can be extremely demanding, and by giving yourself time to refresh your mind and body, you can come back to your care role with renewed energy.
