Respite Care: An Overview

Often, a family member provides the primary care and support for a medically vulnerable person. As an example, an adult child might provide support services to their elderly parent. This could include everything from light duty housekeeping and running errands to medication management and other basic health services.

As rewarding as it can be to support a loved one, it can also be time-consuming and tiring. Everyone needs a break. As defined by the National Institute on Aging (NIA), respite care is short-term care relief for the primary caregiver. Respite care comes in two forms: pre-planned respite care and emergency respite care.

What are the Benefits of Respite Care?

If you are the primary caregiver for an elderly or medically-vulnerable person, you undoubtedly have a lot on your plate—especially if you are also holding down a full-time job or you have other responsibilities. Respite care can offer the breathing room that you need so that you can deal with the rest of your life, recharge your batteries, and ensure that your loved one is still receiving compassionate and reliable support. You and your family can benefit from respite care if:

  • You feel overwhelmed by your current situation;
  • Your relationships are deteriorating because you feel overburdened and stressed out; or
  • Your elderly or vulnerable loved one’s needs are too much for your family to handle alone.
