We all need a break sometimes, whether it is a trip to the beach, or maybe to a new country you have never visited, or a vacation to see your kids and grandkids. But wait, you can’t go because you take care of your Mom and Dad, and you are unable to get away. Well that’s when respite care comes in. Most non-medical home health companies, and skilled companies alike, offer respite care so that you can get a break without the worry of how your parents are doing in your absence. Hourly/daily rates apply and vary nationwide, however it can be a great alternative to not being able to get away for some “you” time. Respite care is a lifesaver for you sanity so remember to call home health providers in your area while planning your next getaway. You will be glad you did!
