Respite care best described as a temporary 24-hour live-in care. While a majority of families take great joy in taking care of their loved ones so that they are able to stay home, the emotional, physical and financial consequences for the family caregivers can be somewhat overwhelming without some form of support, such as the respite programs. These programs provide a break for the family caregiver which can have a very positive impact on the physical as well as emotional health of the family caregiver.
A lot of families that care for their loved ones with Alzheimerís disease have often expressed the need for a respite from care giving. At Advanced Senior Care, we are aware of the fact that taking a vacation, going on a business trip or simply taking a break can be very difficult for anyone who is caring for a senior family member. We offer short and long term live-in programs for family caregivers so that they can have peace of mind when they are unable to provide quality senior care.
