Respite care refers to temporary or short duration arrangements of care for the elderly, intended to provide relief to the regular caregiver. Respite care can mean few hours or few days or weeks.
Typical scenarios where respite care can be useful:
In cases where the senior care recipient is being looked after by the spouse or child and the spouse/child is getting physically or emotionally exhausted from the caregiving. Respite care can be particularly useful in such a scenario so that the family caregiver can take some much-needed rest with the satisfaction of knowing that the care recipient is being looked after, and that they can resume their caregiving as soon as they feel better after the break.
In cases where the family caregiver needs to travel all of a sudden or divert all their attention to an emergency or stressful situation.
In cases where family caregivers have a routine work schedule and need to travel to office but worry about the safety and well-being of the care recipient when left alone at home.
