What is In-Home Respite Care?

The purpose of respite care is to allow the permanent, or regular, caregiver to take time off from their caregiver duties.  This is accomplished by allowing a temporary caregiver to come into the home and care for the senior.   There are three main forms of respite care: respite care at a facility, home, or adult day care.  This section refers solely to respite care at home, but all of them are designed to give the regular caregiver a break.  Over 30 million Americans have been tasked with caregiving in the past year.  The thing to remember is that caregivers have lives too; they work, they are raising families, they are pursuing life.  It can become taxing!  Respite care at home brings in certified and qualified professionals to care for a senior, in the comfort of their own home.
