Respite Care

Rest, Relief and Quality Care

Caring for a loved one can be demanding. You may not have the resources, time or energy to do so. That is where Maxim comes in. Maxim’s respite services can help you take a break from your caregiving responsibilities.

What is Respite Care?

“We have been using Maxim for several years now and we couldn't recommend them more highly. Our caregiver Emily has been simply amazing and we could not be happier with her. She's more than 100% reliable, responsible, flexible, competent and basically the perfect fit for us to the point we pretty much consider her part of the family.” – Andrew, San Jose, CA
