Caregiver burnout effects everyone at some point. We all need a break and there are options. Some of these are:
Adult day cares—many community centers offer these. Visit to find out what they offer and a schedule that might suit you and your loved one
Day hospitals—provide medical care during the day and the loved one returns home in the evening
In-home respite—there are many agencies you can research that provide these services
Short Term Respite—many nursing homes, assisted living facilities and hospice provide short term care in their facility. This is great if you need a week to just get away, go on vacation or for emergencies. Research your options in advance.
