Respite Care and Supportive Services is committed in meeting the needs of frail seniors and their caregivers by providing relief to the primary caregiver.
This program provides low/moderate income families the opportunity to access quality and compassionate respite services at no cost to the client or family. While no payment is required, a voluntary contribution is requested to help sustain these services.
Respite Care is an essential part of the overall support that families may need to care for their frail and elderly family member at home. Respite care can strengthen a family’s ability to continue taking care of their loved one at home instead of being placed at a nursing care facility.
"There are only four kinds of people in the world - those who have been caregivers, those who currently are caregivers, those who will be caregivers and those who will need caregivers." former First Lady Rosalyn Carter
