Respite care provides temporary rest to care givers from care taking, while the patient continues to receive a sound care in a safe environment. By using our respite services, you can strengthen your ability to be a caregiver. Everyone needs a break to rejuvenate isn’t it?
Respite care mainly helps the caregiver by providing them time and a new environment to rest and relax. It is a great way for you to take out time for your own self.

- Time to go shopping, getting a haircut, visiting a spa, exercising, dieting or getting an appointment with the doctor.
- Comfort knowing that the service user is spending time with another qualified caring individual.
Respite care services can give the person suffering from ailments with an opportunity to:
a ) Spend their time in a peaceful, safe and supportive environment.

What To Do In Case of An Emergency:
Any emergencies, unexpected trips or unplanned situations create a need for prompt and immediate care by an alternative care worker. You can try out our caregivers in a non-emergency situation, so that you are prepared when the actual need arises. Moreover, you must talk with your family, friends and neighbours or anybody that you trust for helping out in an emergency. It is always a good idea to have contact information handy when dealing with a person with dementia. Note down the phone numbers of a medical team and make a list of all their current medications along with the dosage and frequency that they have to be taken. You must keep this list easily accessible at all times.
We are dedicated to do the best for you and your family. When the family care giver needs time for himself, we can step in to provide flexible and short time respite care services. We understand that the responsibility of being the sole caregiver can be extremely tiring, we aim to provide high-quality respite care solutions to recharge batteries of the care givers.
