Respite is a planned, temporary, short-term break so you can take some time for yourself to: rest, take a breather, run an errand, take a holiday, spend time with other family members, pursue other interests, or respond to an emergency situation. Respite can be provided in the home of the primary caregiver or in the home of the respite worker. Respite may also include social outings or scheduled appointments.
