Respite Care

Caregiver Support is a Phone Call Away

Talk to caring people for practical caregiving information and help finding local resources/services.

Contact your local Family Caregiver Support Program.

Respite care is a service where another trained person or staff at a facility provide planned, short-term care (a few hours to a few days) for your loved one so you have some time away from caregiving.

Respite care can be in your home, through an adult day center, or at a residential care facility.

Respite care may be provided by home health care agencies, adult family homes, boarding homes, adult day health or adult day care programs, nursing facilities, or family, friends, and volunteers.
