What is Crisis and Emergency Care?

Emergency respite care is an important service in the caregiver support plan because unexpected and urgent situations may develop quickly. Depending on the needs of the family or caregiver, emergency respite care can range from a few hours of care to more extended periods.

Crisis care may be planned such as a family member or caregiver’s scheduled surgery. However, when an unplanned emergency occurs, there is an urgent need for relief or assistance. Crisis care facilities can help families in these situations of need.
