Question: I am a caregiver. What types of resources exist for me?

Being a caregiver can be a loving, but time consuming and strenuous task. Respite care is the break that caregivers get by allowing someone else to temporarily take over some of their caregiver duties. Respite care is designed to help prevent caregiver burnout by helping to relieve some of the workload and stress. You can search our Directory of Services for information related to the 3 main types of respite care: 1)    Adult Day Programs for Seniors  2)    In-home Respite Care  3)    Short Stay Respite Care
