What is Respite?
Respite refers to a short time of rest or relief for the caregiver. It allows the caregiver a break from day to day duties while the person with dementia receives care from qualified individuals. There are many different ways respite care can be provided:
In a home, community organization, churches, synagogues or residential facility.
Respite care can be very beneficial to the health and well-being of the person providing care as well as the person with dementia. For more information, read through our Respite Care Guide.
