"My name is Dorothy and I am 88 years old living alone. I was wondering how long I would be able to carry on with the tasks of day to day living until I heard about Premier Homecare Services. After an interview I was sent caring compassionate caregivers to suite my needs enabling me to remain in the home I love. "
Yes. Respite is care that is provided to give the primary caregiver usually a spouse or child a break from their role. This could be on a regular basis to give the family caregiver some personal time to look forward to each week or could even be to provide care while on vacation. It is important that primary caregivers get a break and respite care allows them to care for themselves too.
