As the primary caregiver, how can I get a break?
It is very important for the primary caregiver to get a break and also focus on their own health and well-being. The community recognizes this, and for that reason, there are many events available to care-givers to help them get that break. They are commonly known as care-giver expos. The primary care-giver can also ask for help from family and friends, hire someone to come into the house to help them with the care-giving, or ask for some respite care from a nursing facility, which is a short-term stay at a nursing facility, so their loved one is cared for while they’re getting a break.
