At Heather Hill, we understand that caring for a loved one can be exhausting and frustrating when you have to do it all alone.
Respite care is temporary relief care designed for families of seniors that require a higher level of care. Respite care can range from a one-time overnight stay to extended care sessions, typically limited to 7-10 days. Providers, chosen by the family, care for seniors that require a higher level of care while families go on a vacation, handle personal/work situations or simply need a break from the challenging task of being a caregiver.
Respite care is designed to help families and other caregivers. Caregivers of seniors often face serious problems and stress as a result of balancing the needs of their loved one with the needs of other family members. These breaks, that respite care provides, allow families time to tend to the needs of their children, spouses, and themselves.
