In brief: It's a break...

Usually respite is a break for a family member (s) or caregiver providing hands on care or supervisory care.
This may include someone to give the family/caregiver a break for a certain period of time of having the person stay in a nursing home for a period of time. Either way this provides a break since caregiving can be very challenging.
