From the South Carolina Respite Coalition.

Finding a good caregiver is often difficult. Many people decide to go out for dinner, take a quiet walk, run errands, or attend a sports activity, then consider their choices and plan for respite care. But what if you have no plan?

Planning ahead and putting in the time and effort to train individuals to care for your loved one’s specific needs will give you regular respite. Over time, you will come to trust and rely on your caregiver’s help. On the other hand, if you wait until an emergency or crisis develops, you will feel helpless, isolated, and overwhelmed.
