Respite care facilitates the caring of family members, including elderly parents, who might otherwise be in a facility. Respite care reduces the physical, emotional and financial stress associated with caring for family members who have disabilities and/or chronic illnesses. Respite care promotes health and well-being for caregivers and helps to reduce the likelihood of neglect or abuse. Additionally, the Lifespan Respite Act was passed in 2006 to develop lifespan respite programs to help families obtain access to quality and affordable respite care.

What is Respite?

The American Heritage Dictionary defines "respite" as:

"A usually short interval of rest or relief."

As caregivers, family members often need a respite from caregiving in order to be able to continue giving care effectively. Respite care can be provided in or out of the home.

Private Home Care services can be used for in-home care relief. Adult Day Centers offer daytime hours of care and activities. Some Senior Centers offer adult day care. For longer periods, many Assisted Living Communities offer respite care for several days or weeks at a time.
