Respite at Home
While caring for a loved one at home is the hope and intention of most families, it usually can only be accomplished on a short term basis because people who have dementia or other chronic disabilities will inevitably need more physical and cognitive assistance. As the care needs of the loved one increase so does the amount of emotional, physical and financial stress for the family. When care needs arise, it is wise to look for a long term care setting and team that can grow and adapt to the life changes that are ahead. Some families rely on Home Care or Adult Day Care to help fill in the gaps and provide some respite but these options have limitations. The two most common limitations of Adult Day Care and In Home Care, are that they are short term solutions and are expensive for the amount of care and services provide compared to the amount of service received in a Residential Care Home.
