Respite Care in Eastern Washington State

Respite care is when a primary caregiver gets a small reprieve from caring for their loved one. It’s a time for those caregivers to rest, travel, or spend time with other friends and family. The Coventry House Assisted Living care team in Eastern Washington State offers respite care services for caregivers who need a small break from caring for their loved ones.

What Is Respite Care?

If you’ve been working nonstop to care for your loved one, you may need a small break to help reset. That is where respite care comes in. Respite care:

  • Allows the primary caregiver to rest and relax
  • Allows the caregiver to tend to personal needs
  • Relieves pressure and stress on the primary caregiver
  • Helps to prevent social isolation

Respite for caregivers and family members can be beneficial for everyone. Family members with care needs can also benefit from having someone different take care of them, even temporarily. Whether the respite care is for one night, a few days, or even a week or two, it can offer a change of scenery, routine, and people to interact with.

It’s common for those who need care to feel like a burden on other family members, sometimes leading to guilt and frustration. Interacting with new people through respite care can help remove these feelings. It can also prevent the health challenges that arise from social isolation.

Who Can Help With Respite Care?

Respite care doesn’t have to take place at the caretaker’s home. Individuals can receive respite care at:

  • Another home
  • Residential care facility
  • Adult day center
  • Nursing facility

A friend or neighbor doesn’t have to be the person providing the care, either. Respite care can be provided by:

  • Health care agencies
  • Adult family homes
  • Family
  • Friends
  • Volunteers
  • Boarding homes
  • Adult day health
  • Adult daycare programs
  • Nursing facilities

Whoever you choose to care for your loved one while taking a break, make sure it is someone you and your loved one trust.
