Free Respite for Caregivers is available again from Lifespan
You are an unpaid “family” caregiver if . . .
You provide care or support for an adult or child with a chronic or condition that prevents self-care.
You may even be a family member, friend, or neighbor.
Your family member needs support with activities of daily living.
You are not “paid” to support your family member. (Yet for those who are able to receive some financial support, it does not mean they are compensated adequately for their help. They may even have to give up earning an income in order to provide the care needed.
Even though you have made a decision to help your spouse, parent, child, or other loved one, we understand it can take a lot of time, effort and work. You may have become a caregiver suddenly and without warning, or perhaps your role evolved slowly over time. It can even be mentally and emotionally challenging as you balance their needs with your own.
We acknowledge sacrifices you have made. You matter: Clearly, your loved ones need you. And your daily work saves our State billions of dollars every year.
You deserve an occasional break to help you in your important role. You deserve RESPITE.
