Respite Programs and Adult Day Centers

By providing the person with dementia supervision for a few hours, days, or sometimes weeks, respite programs provide temporary relief to the dementia caregiver. This allows the caregiver to have time to rest, spend time with friends, work, or to simply run errands alone. Respite care can be provided at home, in a facility, or at an adult day care center. In addition to companionship, services sometimes also include help with personal care, medical care, or light housekeeping. Take Time Texas provides information about respite services across the state.

Adult day centers are day programs for your loved one to socialize and enjoy activities in a group setting. Some adult day care centers allow for the individual to be dropped off, while others require a caregiver to remain on site. Cost and times of programs can vary significantly.
