What is respite care? Do you provide it?
Respite care is an intermittent short-term stay to relieve the primary caregiver of their duties on a temporary basis and allow them an opportunity to take a much needed break. Yes, we do provide respite care.
How do I get started in making health care decisions for myself or a loved one?
Get started by including your primary care physician in the decision-making process. He or she can tell you about your loved one’s physical, mental and emotional well-being so that you can start to understand what care will be the most beneficial.
