Bloomfield Hills, MI Respite Care
About Our Award-winning Respite Care Services
Respite care is temporary and short-term care provided to individuals, often elderly or disabled, who require assistance and support but whose primary caregivers need a break from their responsibilities. The goal of respite care is to offer relief to family caregivers by giving them time to rest, attend to their needs, or take a break while ensuring that their loved ones receive proper care during their absence.

What risks do seniors and family caregivers face without access to quality Respite Care?
Not receiving respite care services for older relatives can lead to several problems:
- Increased caregiver burden: Without respite care, family caregivers may experience increased stress, exhaustion, and burnout. They may need help to balance their caregiving responsibilities with other aspects of their lives, such as work or personal commitments.
- Decline in caregiver’s physical and mental health: The constant demands of caregiving without breaks can negatively impact the caregiver’s physical and psychological well-being. They may experience fatigue, depression, anxiety, and an increased risk of developing chronic health conditions.
- Reduced quality of care: Caregivers who do not receive respite care may struggle to consistently provide the same level of quality care. They may become overwhelmed, leading to potential lapses in medication management, supervision, or emotional support for the older relative.
