Special Needs Home Care
When you’re a caregiver for someone with special needs, it can be difficult to take time away from your responsibilities. Nu Care is here to help. We provide respite care services that give caregivers the break they need while ensuring their loved one receives the best possible care and attention.
Respite services are planned special needs home care times, designed to provide temporary relief and support for primary caregivers of children or adults with physical, mental, or developmental disabilities. It can involve providing short-term breaks from caregiving responsibilities, allowing the caregiver time off to rest and recharge. Respite services can include in-home assistance such as companionship and supervision, designed to support loved ones who may require assistance with daily activities such as dressing, bathing, meals, or medication management
