What is Respite?
Respite Care provides caregivers a temporary break, or time of relief, from their care giving duties. It is ideal for family caregivers in need of a break for vacation or other travel or for loved ones needing assistance in recovering from a health circumstance or life transition.
Respite Care also serves to provide a break from the constant physical and emotional stress of caring for a person with 24/7 needs, such as a person with Alzheimer’s disease, related dementia, cognitive and physical impairment and disability.
Caregivers often develop stress-related illnesses such as heart disease, hypertension, or ulcers. An occasional break allows an exhausted caregiver to regroup, both physically and emotionally, and to find the strength to carry on.
Touchpoints at Farmington specializes in providing respite care service to patients with memory care needs and provides a safe, secure, reliable and temporary location for loved one to receive this care.
There are many sources of funding for Respite Care, making the service accessible and affordable. Let us assist you in connecting to resources by calling iCentral Admissions at (860) 812-0788 or see below.
