Respite Care

Respite care provides temporary support services when an individual’s regular caregivers are unavailable. 

Temporary care, provided by trained professionals, offers various types of care arrangements on a short-term basis, including assisted living, residential care, dementia care, and nursing care. It is suitable for instances when the primary caregiver requires a break or temporary support is needed. 

The primary goal of temporary care professionals is to ensure continued care support to maintain independence at home.
