Buffalo, NY Respite Care at Bristol Home
What is Respite Care?
Respite care is a great option for many families! Outside the world of paid work, the people most prone to burnout are caregivers – people who devote themselves to the unpaid care of chronically ill or disabled family members. The demands of caregiving can be overwhelming, especially if you feel you have little control over the situation or that you’re in over your head.
If you let the stress of caregiving progress to burnout, it can damage both your physical and mental health. So if you’re caring for a family member, it’s essential that you get the support you need.
Respite care provides short term breaks that relieve stress, restore energy, and promote balance in your life. Bristol Home offers Respite Care for shorter period of time, typically days or weeks. Although medical insurance generally does not cover respite care, long term care policies may subsidize the costs.
