Care in Midstream offers Short Term Care for Assisted Living, Frail Care and Dementia & Alzheimer’s Care. This provides home caregivers with the opportunity to take a short holiday, attend to important business or allow them time to nourish their own health. Holiday care can be the most valuable tool in avoiding caregiver stress and burnout. It helps to sustain the health of the primary caregiver, and in so doing, supports the health of the person receiving care. Short Term Care can be arranged for a period from 1 day, up to 30 days.
