Respite care provides short-term, temporary relief from caregiving responsibilities. Many times, a little bit of help goes a long way, whether it’s the freedom to run a few errands, pick the kids up from school, or simply take a much-needed break. Respite care gives family caregivers some time for themselves and for other personal and family matters, and it’s available for both recurring and on-demand needs.
Bringing professional care into the home can allow loved ones to remain in their most comfortable and familiar surroundings without sacrificing safety or disrupting the care plans prescribed by doctors.
Family care needs aren’t always age dependent. Something as common as a broken bone or the arrival of a new baby can complicate life in a hurry. If a child already has special needs, caring for an aging parent can be even more difficult to manage. BrightStar Care offers families a range of care options to respond to both expected and unexpected needs at any age, whether the condition is temporary or chronic.
Always remember: You are not alone! Countless families face the very same circumstances, and care options are expanding to meet these growing needs.
