What is respite?

Respite is temporary relief from the responsibilities associated with caregiving. Respite is important because it gives family caregivers time away from often time-intensive and demanding responsibilities, so that they can reenergize by focusing on their own wants and needs.

Respite is typically provided in the home, but other options may be available. If you are in need of respite or would like to learn more about options available to you, please call 740-363-6677 and ask to speak with one of our information and referral specialists.
