Respite Care

Respite Care Information

Many family members provide basic care for aging family themselves. Providing such care, however, poses a number of problems for family caregivers, who can eventually experience mental and physical exhaustion after extended caregiving. Respite Care allows family caregivers a break to attend to other life necessities like personal appointments or alone time. While a family caregiver is away, a respite caregiver can temporarily see to the daily concerns of an elderly person.

Below is a collection of articles and resources created by Comfort Keepers to provide information about Respite Care and related topics.
