Respite care provides the family a break from caregiving. It is provided by professionals experienced in dealing with many issues related to chronic illness or other age related issues. Respite care provides short term breaks that relieve stress, restore energy, and promote balance in your life.
Respite can take many forms, but boils down to two basic ideas: sharing the responsibility for caregiving and getting support for yourself. Finding the right balance requires persistence, patience and preparation.
Give yourself a break. Give the person with Parkinson’s disease a break. You may find the benefits far outweigh the costs.
We have provided a list for some of the Colorado respite companies who have experience working with a Parkinson patient. However, we strongly encourage you to interview more than one company to find the best fit for you and your loved one. Costs and services vary between companies.
