Many of our Direct Service Professionals (DSP) are bilingual.
Respite is short-term care and supervision is consistent with the health needs of the person. For families and caregivers that are experiencing stress, exhaustion or burnout respite care for your family member has many benefits, such as:
- the opportunity to relax, which promotes things like good health and good sleep, Having an opportunity to relax can also prevent depression.
- time to promote your physical well being by going to your personal doctor, dentist and other medical appointments.
- prevents stress-induced bad habits and creates the time and opportunity to develop healthier habits like exercising and starting a new hobby.
- maintain social engagement by visiting with friends, going shopping or joining a club.
- reduce friction between the caregiver and the family member by allowing time to be away and allowing frustrations and stressors to melt away.
