Respite care: An essential part of a caregiver's toolkit

Respite care is not a luxury, but a key tool in supporting a caregiver's wellbeing.

Mental Health America has an excellent resource, Building Your Coping Toolkit. What would be in your caregiver coping toolkit? 

Everyone needs a break from work, whether that's a 9-5 traditional job or the 24-7 work of caregiving. One of the most difficult things for caregivers to do is simply taking that first step in seeking help. 

Respite care comes in many forms: short breaks, longer periods of respite, and recurring respite arrangements. Check out the Respite Care Share blog for more information about how respite care works.
