Many caregivers dedicate much or most of their free time to taking care of their elder family member. In an increasingly mobile society where some family members have moved out of the general area, the remaining family member(s) have an increased responsability and very little chance to go anywhere, do anything, or even have a family vacation.
Respite care allows caretakers to allow temporary or occasional time off to recoup emotionally, handle other family tasks or get away for awhile.
Respite strengthens the ability of families and primary caregivers to continue to provide care in the home. Occasional relief supports family stability and well-being. Respite is often referred to as a gift of time.
