The life-time care time-horizon

Respite care is the provision of temporary relief to those who are caring for family members who might otherwise require permanent placement in a facility outside of the home. Respite programs provide planned short-term, time-limited breaks for families and other unpaid primary care givers of adults with an intellectual and/or physical disability.

Shared help from loved ones, and government part-time home care services, helps relieve the primary at-home caregivers to enable them to maintain their own wellness. It allows an aging population to move gracefully towards the potential need for a 24/7 care and/or a palliative care program when medical care or treatment concentrates on reducing the severity of the symptoms of diseases relating to aging, rather than striving to reverse progression of disease. At this final stage of care, the goal is to prevent and relieve suffering for people facing serious, long-term complex illness.

  • Broader choices about the quality and amount of care you receive.
