Respite

Respite care is a short-term caregiving arrangement designed to give a primary family caregiver a much needed break. Respite provides the caregiver time for themselves as well as the rest of their family. It can be scheduled on a regular basis or as the need arises. Respite can be provided in the home by outside services or may be provided by facilities.  The following organizations offer some respite assistance either directly or through grants. Consult the Caregiver Resources section for help researching options and the Financial Concerns & Resources section  for financial assistance.
