Respite care provides short-term relief for primary caregivers. Many family caregivers experience stress and emotional exhaustion trying to juggle their needs with the responsibilities of caring for an elderly loved one. Respite care services enable family caregivers to take much-needed breaks and focus on their personal lives while ensuring their senior loved ones continue to receive compassionate and friendly personal care.
A respite caregiver from LEX Home Health Care can help individuals with tasks inside the home, including preparing healthy meals, folding clothes or simply providing companionship. Respite care can take place in a hospice or medical facility, a senior day care center or in the comfort of the individuals own home.
