Respite Care



Everyone needs a break. BHN Healthcare provides you a temporary rest from caregiving, while your loved one continues to receive care in a safe environment. Using our respite services can support and strengthen your ability to be a caregiver.

We also provide residential option for seniors who want or need help temporarily or permanently.




What is Respite Care and Why is it Necessary?

Respite care is a temporary arrangement whereby you can leave your elderly or loved ones at our assisted living facility for a period of time while you go on vacation or attend to some urgent requirement and not able to devote time to your loved one.

You as a Caregiver are at increased risk of depression and other health problems as a result of the stress of being a caregiver. Having respite care can enable the caregiver to keep providing rather than burning out or becoming ill herself.

What Else Can I Do to Avoid Burn Out?

Providing constant care is a demanding job. It's crucial for caregivers to take a break periodically and this need is a normal part of the life-cycle of care.

The Bottom Line

If you are caring for a loved one, you need to take care of yourself so that you can continue to provide that care. Finding respite care is a necessity.

Our Respite care service can provide you with:

1.   A chance to go on vacation
2.   A chance to spend time with other friends and family, or to just relax
3.   Time to take care of errands.
4.   Comfort and peace of mind knowing that your loved one is spending time with another caring individual

Our Respite care services can give your loved one an opportunity to:

1.   Interact with others having similar experiences and background
2.   Spend time in a safe, supportive environment
3.   Participate in activities designed to match personal abilities and needs

Plan Ahead: Respite Care for Unexpected Situations

Emergencies, unplanned situations or unexpected trips can create a need for immediate care by an alternative caregiver. Try us out in a non-emergency situation, so you're ready if the need arises. It's a good idea to have contact information for your loved one's medical team as well as a list of all current medications (with dosage and frequency taken) easily accessible at all times.
