We understand that as a caregiver, caring for a loved one can be stressful. HealthStar Home Health’s respite care program provides planned short-term and time-limited breaks for caregivers. Respite care offers you time to take care of yourself: visit a friend for lunch, run errands, or go an appointment. Our health care professionals will provide light housecleaning, care, and companionship while you’re away. HealthStar Home Health’s respite service helps support and maintain a healthy relationship and provides a positive experience for the person receiving care.
