Respite is a temporary reprieve from the daily tasks provided by caregivers to those in their care. Respite gives parents or other primary caregivers a much-needed break from the 24/7 stresses of caring for a fragile loved one. Respite affords them the opportunity to spend time in self-renewing activities.
