What is Respite Care?

shutterstock_144105316All caregivers need some time off for vacation, special family occasions or even their own health needs. And that’s where The Meadows and Heartland can help. We offer respite care at The Meadows and Heartland, and many times Medicare may pay most of the cost beyond the co-pay.

Respite care is short-term or temporary care services to relieve an in-home caregiver of responsibilities for an individual with long-term care needs. Respite care provides short-term breaks that can relieve stress, restore energy, and promote balance in your life.

There are also benefits for the resident. They will receive quality care, spend time in a safe, supportive environment, interact with others and if able, participate in activities designed to match personal abilities.
