The word 'respite' is a noun and usually the word is used in association with the term 'from something'. The meaning that you can figure out from the term is a short break or escape that you get from something unpleasant or difficult. The following sentence can help you if you want to understand the word to use it yourself: This drug has brought at least a brief respite from the ache. The sentence says that a particular drug has provided a relief from a kind of pain.

When you are using the word in association with 'care' you are talking about the temporary care that is arranged for older or mentally ill people so that those people who normally care for the old can take rest for a while.
