Hello everyone, as many of you know I help my sister care for my mom every week. I just found out I am going to have to have surgery in about a month and so my sister and I have decided to put mom in respite while I recover. Does anyone have experience with hospice respite? Do they help pay for some of the cost? I am just trying to get thing lined up and will be calling my Area Agency on Aging on Monday but I know the forum has a lot of good insite so I thought I would check to see what you all had to say on the subject. And just so you know bringing in outside caregivers won't work because truefully my sister needs a break as well. Thanks for listening and for you help.
