As an informal caregiver, your schedule often revolves around the person you help. But what happens if you need to travel for work, or you simply want a weekend off?
That's when respite care can help you.
Respite care offers temporary (more than 24 hours) services for seniors and others with special needs.
This can include help with activities, around-the-clock nursing assistance and more.
Check with your local agency to learn what they offer.
