Respite Care Information
Many family members provide basic care for aging family themselves. Providing such care, however, poses a number of problems for family caregivers, who can eventually experience mental and physical exhaustion after extended caregiving. Respite Care allows family caregivers a break to attend to other life necessities like personal appointments or alone time. While a family caregiver is away, a respite caregiver can temporarily see to the daily concerns of an elderly person.
Below is a collection of articles and resources created by Comfort Keepers Canada to provide information about Respite Care and related topics.
The importance of respite care options for Canada’s seniors and their caregivers: according to the 2012 GSS, at some point in their lives, 46% of Canadians had provided some type of care to a family member or friend with a long-term health condition, disability or aging needs.
Respite care can benefit the health of both Canada’s seniors and their family caregivers. In a study, 60% of family caregivers, ages 19-64, reported “fair or poor” health and one or more chronic conditions or disabilities, compared with only 33% of non-caregivers.
