Depending on your needs, as well as those of your loved one, a respite care worker will come to your home for a few hours. These visits could be once a week, or three times per week. While the respite care worker tends to your loved one, you’re free to get away. You can use these hours to meet friends for lunch, attend a hair appointment, or even read a book in the backyard. The point is, this is your time to rest and recover. Get some sleep and revive your spirit!
