What is Respite Care?
Respite Care is short-term, temporary relief to those who are caring for family members who might otherwise require permanent placement in a facility outside the home.
Even though many families take great joy in providing care to their loved ones so that they can remain at home, the physical, emotional and financial consequences for the family caregiver can be overwhelming without some support, such as respite. Respite provides the much needed temporary break from the often exhausting challenges faced by the family caregiver.
Respite care can be for a few days or even a few weeks. It's the chance for families to take a real break...a vacation from the stress of everyday life with a family member that needs constant care. In fact, respite care is the service most often requested by family caregivers, yet it is in critically short supply, inaccessible, or unaffordable regardless of the age or disability of the individual needing assistance.
Kendallville Manor is proud to provide Respite Care at an affordable rate to those who need a "break." Whether you need help for a few days or a few weeks, we can help!
