Introducing a new guide to respite care

Alzheimer’s Australia has just published two new resources on respite care for people with dementia: one is aimed at people with dementia and family carers, and the other is aimed at service providers.

The 20-page booklet for people with dementia and family carers looks at topics such as finding a respite service, making the most of respite care, communicating with respite staff, and a checklist for things to consider when choosing respite. It also has a number of stories of people who have tried respite and the sorts of things they have learned from this experience.
