  • What Is Respite Care?

    Many primary caregivers can overtime experience caregiver burnout or exhaustion. Being a primary care giver for a loved one can be physically and emotionally draining, especially if your caregiver duties are on top of a regular job and home duties as well. Often caregivers can experience guilt over feelings of burnout or stress.

    Respite care allows for planned, periodic respites or breaks for caregivers to have time to tend to life as needed. While the family primary caregiver is away, a respite caregiver can temporarily attend to the care needs of the loved one.

    Respite Care Can Help

    Respite care can assist the primary caregiver to return to their caregiving duties refreshed, re-energized and relaxed. Would you like to have time for travel, errands, socializing and keeping healthy, but still maintain the care for your loved one? Respite care can help.

    Professional in-home health care providers, like United Home Healthcare, are specially-trained to provide respite care for loved ones.
