Care Respite – Different Types of Respite Services

At times the carers tend to ignore their own well-being while attending to their clients. Care Respite is extremely important because it provides the much required break for both the carer and the person being cared. The duration of Care Respite depends on the stress levels and may be as short as few hours or may extend up to few weeks.
There are various different types of Care Respite services which include:

  • Day care centres and local health centres provide Day Care Respite.
  • The carer needs to have few hours of rest and also spend time for shopping, cleaning and outing with friends to rejuvenate himself. This is known as Short Term Care Respite.
  • For Residential Care Respite, one can utilize up to nine weeks of respite during a financial year.
  • Care Respite centres provides all necessary information and support to promote healthy living for carers.
