R-e-s-p-i-t-e Spells Respect
Published on 31/05/2004
This commentary discusses the need for respite for the millions of Canadians who care at home for elderly, sick or disabled relatives. The notion of “respite as outcome” encourages a fundamental shift in the way we understand the concept and practice of respite. Rather than viewing respite simply as a service to caregivers, it should be seen more appropriately as an outcome for caregivers. This reprieve derives from a number of possible supports delivered within or outside the home.
