The department gives the family time off / relief from taking care of their loved one. Companion caregivers and CHHA’s are hired to provide homemaking needs, light housekeeping duties, meal preparation and laundry.
No medications are dispensed by the respite worker.
We take Regional Center clients and private requests.
Some insurances will cover custodial care.
