While nursing homes offer numerous advantages for the support needs of the frail, the elderly and the terminally ill in terms of expertise and availability of help twenty fours hours per day, it is not always the best option for each person, and in homecare should be considered as an alternative first.

Posted by Linda Summerton on Dec 3, 2015 10:35:00 AM

If you look at the definition of respite it says : a short period of time when you are able to stop doing something that is difficult or unpleasant ... most people think of respite in terms of a carer taking a break.
