Respite provides care on a short-term basis for a person who cannot take care of themselves, and who is usually taken care of by an unpaid family member or friend. The program is designed to provide temporary coverage for the unpaid caregiver during an absence or need for relief.
Respite care provides much needed relief for primary or family caregivers. Respite care provides family members breaks from the daily routine of care giving. It can relieve stress, restore energy and promote the necessary balance in one's life.
Interim Healthcare will often arrange for a free in-home evaluation to discuss the type and length of respite care needed, and a plan of service will be developed.
Respite care can include:
* Personal Care (bathing, grooming, dressing)
* Light housekeeping (laundry, dishes, fresh linens)
* Meal preparation
* Errands outside the house (prescription pickup, dry cleaning)
* Transportation and companionship to and from appointments
