Respite Care

Caregivers face many challenges. A primary caregiver who is under too much stress from the constant demands of caregiving cannot provide adequate care. Arranging respite care for the first time may be difficult, but it should become an essential part of any caregiver’s schedule. Some signs that may signal a need to arrange for respite care include:

Increased Anxiety

Decline in sleep

An increase in irritability

Feeling of anger towards care recipient
