What is Respite Care?
Respite care is short-term care designed for adults with special medical needs. Respite care can range from a few hours to overnight and extended stays. You can utilize respite care services as frequently as you need to, without a commitment to a particular community.
The Benefits of Respite Care
Caring for a loved one at home is rewarding, certainly, but it can also be difficult to balance your needs and theirs. The stress of providing home care can affect your work productivity and take an emotional and physical toll on your entire family.
Respite care gives home caregivers an opportunity to work, run errands, clean up around the house, or even take a much-needed vacation.
There are several benefits to respite care.
- Delayed full-time nursing care, which controls care costs
- Reduced caregiver strain and stress, as well as associated mortality risks
- Improved family dynamic and function
- Reduced hospitalization for respite care recipients
- Improved physical and emotional health for both the caregiver and the respite care recipient

You can use Embassy's respite care services just once, if you like. We also offer programs that allow for half-day and full-day respite care, as well as extended-stay respite care.
