Everyone needs a break. Respite care provides caregivers a temporary rest from caregiving, while the person with dementia or any other constant needs continues to receive care in a safe environment. Using respite services can support and strengthen your ability to be a caregiver.

Respite care can help you as a caregiver by providing a new environment or time to relax. It's a good way for you to take time for yourself.

Respite care can provide:

  • A chance to spend time with other friends and family, or to just relax

  • Time to take care of errands such as shopping, exercising, getting a haircut or going to the doctor

  • Comfort and peace of mind knowing that the person with dementia is spending time with another caring individual

Respite care services can give the person with dementia an opportunity to:

  • Interact with others having similar experiences
  • Spend time in a safe, supportive environment
  • Participate in activities designed to match personal abilities and needs

A Better Solution offers a range of options including:

  • Companion services to the individual with companionship and supervised activities
  • Personal care or home health aide services to provide assistance with bathing, dressing, toileting and exercising
  • Homemaker or maid services to help with laundry, shopping and preparing meals
  • Private Duty care services to help with medication and other medical services
