This is my opinion concerning respite. My thoughts have been shaped, mostly, by many years of listening to all manner of individuals concerning respite and how to attain it.
It seems to be accepted that people need periodic rest from stressful situations in order to deliver their best work. Many “experts” believe family and friends are a mostly untapped source.
Some reading this might immediately say, I have asked and it produced nothing but anger for me.
This post has no answers . . . . . except to say contact the Alzheimer’s Association and ask them for help in knowing what to say to family and friends, and in what type package your request should come.
Please spend some energy and time on this.
