As a caregiver, there is an emphasized importance of finding time for youself away from the responsibilities of caring for loved one. You may also need other kinds of help: someone to see that a person who is alone during the day gets his or her meals; someone to help give the person a bath; some to watch the person while you Shop, rest, or take a break; someone to help with the housework; or someone with whom you can talk things over.
Such outside help is called RESPITE because it gives you a break from Caregiving.
