Short Term Respite Care

Short Term Respite Care

I have a couple of events I dearly want to attend. I feel it would not be good if I took my husband with me. I have the option of 5 days respite care.
Has anyone had their LO in short term respite care? If so, what was your person like upon being back home with you?

Hi Mary, I had my husband in respite care for 5 days and went to see my new grandson. I was worried sick about him but when I picked him up everything was fine and it was just another day. I did have my sister check in on him and let me know, that helped. I would say do this for yourself I felt totally reset when I got back home.💕

I contacted the facility personally and they sent a nurse to our house to evaluate my husband. The evaluation was good for 30 days.

Since my husband wasn't remembering much, it was not bad when he came home. It was just another day . They said he was fine but asked for the other lady ( me) the told him I was off.

Who do I contact for respite care. Should I contact the individual faculties? 🙃
