What is Respite Care?
Respite care differs from traditional home care in a few ways. For one, it is often scheduled in the form of short-term care visits or temporary care plans. However, we do also offer ongoing services for families in Fredericksburg who require a helping hand to reduce their overall workload. Additionally, family caregivers conduct the majority of caregiving tasks with this care type. They can request that a professional from our care team take on whatever level of responsibility they are most comfortable with.
