Options For Post-Hospital Discharge Care
"Respite care provides short-term relief for primary caregivers, ranging from a few hours to weeks. It can be provided at home, in a hospital, or at a center. Respite care can help alleviate stress, bring balance to your life, and prevent burnout. It can also benefit the person you care for by providing a break from their usual routine and new experiences."
Caring for yourself is crucial as a caregiver. Taking time for yourself is not selfish, as it will help you recharge your batteries and be more energized and focused. When you return to caregiving, you may even learn new ways to approach common problems, making the experience more rewarding for both you and the person you care for.

Who Needs Respite Care?
If someone is sick or has a disability, they may need care all the time. Caregivers sometimes need time to rest and relax, go on vacation, shop, go to appointments, work, or work out.
Respite care is for people who are in charge of someone with a condition like:
Respite Care Services
Respite care gives your loved one a safe, comfortable space when you stay away. People who are sick or disabled can talk to people who are trained to do so. Your loved one can also benefit from the following:
Eat or drink
Enjoy the outdoors
Get in and out of bed
You can also choose to care for a group. This happens mostly at assisted-living facilities, adult day care centers, or community centers.
These programs might include music, dance, or art classes, taught by people who know what they're doing. They usually offer group meals, entertainment, or just a chance to talk with other people.
Someone who is sick or old and stays at home all the time may feel lonely. Caregivers can also feel alone. Respite care could give you both a much-needed break.
Engaging family members in respite care
Family and friends can help when you work, take a break, or vacation. But just as caregiving is often too much for one person to handle alone, it can also be hard for families to work together. Caregiving can be very hard on even the healthiest families, especially if the work isn't shared evenly. You can get people to help and take part by using the following methods:
Talk often and honestly. Tell your family what your loved one needs and how they are doing. Family members who don't take care of someone every day may not fully understand the demands and stresses that come with it.
Encourage family members to think about what they can do. Family involvement can be affected by changes in roles and levels of resources. Accept different points of view, know your limits, and be willing to try other things. Share a list of what you need and accept all offers to help.
Recognize how you feel and talk about tasks that are too much or too little. When you need more help, holding on to anger can hurt your health and even lead to burnout. Ask family members straight out for specific use and time commitments. You could set up an online calendar to plan relief and confirm schedules.
Use technology to connect with people far away. Try free video conferencing services to get the whole family together when it's convenient for everyone. Make a web-based community where people can share news and discuss their options.
Join up with support groups. Learning how other families deal with problems can give you new ideas and ways to deal with your own. By getting to know other reliable and trustworthy caregivers, you may also be able to trade respite services with them. And when siblings can't or won't help each other out, peer support can greatly help.
