At Home Instead, with our convenient respite care services, we offer a simple solution to what could be a potentially serious conflict for any primary caregiver. Even the most competent family caregivers need time to decompress and revitalize their own health. After all, providing all the necessary caregiving to an ailing family member is physically and emotionally draining. A recent survey by the Commonwealth Fund reported that 60 percent of all family caregivers experienced fair or poor health including one or more chronic conditions. This is compared to only 33 percent of non-caregivers.
