As caregivers and family members take on more and more tasks in their everyday lives, it can be a struggle to juggle their caregiving duties with the hectic schedule of work, childcare, errands, and the occasional emergency. Some of us are also starting to make summer vacation plans which may bring us away from our daily responsibilities. For the increasingly busy caregiver and family members, one should consider Respite Care which brings us to our core question: What is Respite Care, and how does it work?
