Best Practices: In-Home Care and Respite Services

Services such as in-home care and, especially in-home respite services, are two of the top supports cited by caregivers as most beneficial in their ability to continue to provide good care for a loved one. Caregivers are frequently the only people caring for their loved ones and may be doing it in addition to caring for a child, a spouse, and/or working a full-time job. In-home services and in-home respite offer a needed time for the caregiver to take care of other needs including their own.

The Caregiver Friendly Communities Assessment scores this domain in two primary service categories:

  1. In-Home Services (non-respite)
  2. Respite Services (both in-home and out-of-home)
