Heart Failure Awareness Week: Socializing for Caregivers

Emma Pestritto • 15 February 2024

 Social isolation affects caregivers as well. Whether it’s a family wedding or lunch with your friends, getting out can be hard when your loved one needs around the clock care. Follow along today to learn about respite care and other options!


Respite Care:

  • Short-term care services provided to a person when their primary caregiver is absent or needs relief.
  • In-home respite or out-of-home respite options may be available. Check with your state’s Department of Human Services to see what services your loved one may qualify for.

When to use Respite Care:

  • When you need a break or want to attend a function.
  • Special events such as weddings or graduations
  • Regular assistance so you can run errands or connect with family or friends.
