My wife and our next door neighbour have looking after an old french lady with Parkinsons.Eventually it became to much and they found a Home for her which also did the respite programe.I do not know how much a week would cost but a Longterm stay with a Doctor and Nurses plus meals etc is 1600 TL per month.She has her own room and is well looked after.Whilst this is in Antalya I would think that other similar places are available around Fethiye.
Take a look at the website for the Halcyon Days Hotel in Ovacik. Under the Disabled Facilities tab it mentions that they also provide respite care.
whilst there are some elderly care establishments in various areas of Turkey, as a general rule the Turks see it as a family duty to look after older people.
Indeed its one of the major cultural differences in that many there are appalled at what they perceive as the Western idea of "dumping" our elderly away in establishments.
I think I read recently of someone opening a home in the Fethiye area. I am sure someone will be along soon to give you better help.
You should also check Fethiye Times website as thats possibly where I read it
Yes, I do. Why do you ask?
We have my elderly father-in-law living with us. Are there any establishments in the Fethiye/Kalkan area that anybody knows of that provide respite care for the elderly? We would love a week off?
