Time Away to Relieve Stress and Restore Energy

Respite care is an underused yet valuable service that allows caregivers to place their loved ones with qualified medical professionals, allowing a respite, or rest, from the often stressful duties of caregiving. As part of respite care, Mercy Health — West Park provides a furnished apartment, three meals a day, social activities and personalized care as needed.

Respite care is often necessary because it provides short-term breaks to relieve stress, restore energy and promote balance for caregivers.
