Respite - Getting A Deserved Break from Caregiving

Respite Care Assistant Are you currently providing care for a loved one? Are you struggling to find enough time to take care of yourself and your own needs?  If so, you are not alone!  Studies show caregivers often do not take a break from their caregiving role.  This can cause stress related health problems, feelings of depression or anxiety, and puts a strain on both the caregiver and the care recipient. It is okay to need a break... RESPITE is a way to get that break. 

The information on these pages is designed to help you and your loved one choose the right type of respite to meet both your needs.  Do not wait until you are tired and overwhelmed... make respite a regular part of your caregiving role early and often!
