Respite Care in Massachusetts
Respite Care provides family caregivers with a break from their demanding role. A personal Home Caregiver from HouseWorks can assist with meal preparation, transportation, light housekeeping, and similar responsibilities, while also providing companionship to your loved one.
Respite Care can be a great opportunity for family caregivers to get a well-deserved break. If you know that you have book club once a week, need to go visit your children on the weekend, or just need to get out, Respite Care can provide you with the ability to get away. Many primary caregivers have taken advantage of Respite Care and implemented it into their weekly routines to allow themselves to prioritize their mental health and personal life. Having a formal break from being the primary caregiver decreases caregiver burnout and allows you and your loved one to have more quality time together, rather than always feeling like you’re working.
