Respite Care

Respite care is the provision of short-term, temporary relief to those who are caring for family members who might otherwise require permanent placement in a facility outside the home.  Access to respite care has been shown to improve caregiver health and well-being, promote family stability, and avoid and delay more costly out-of-home placements.1
