Taking care of a loved one in need can be a very rewarding experience. As a caregiver, you provide much-needed assistance and comfort to someone who may have given you the same kind of care in your youth. At times you may need to take a short break to deal with personal matters, run errands or focus on your own needs. That's when respite care comes to the rescue. According to AARP, respite care can meet a broad range of situations. It could be something you take advantage of once a week in order to buy groceries, or it could be something you rely on once a year while you take a vacation.
