What is Respite Care?

Respite service can provide a much-needed, temporary break from the often exhausting challenges faced by family caregivers.  Respite vouchers let caregivers hire another person (respite provider) to temporarily care for their loved ones.    

Respite care strengthens families, helps keep caregivers healthy, and forestalls the need for individuals requiring full-time care to move into state-financed institutions or expensive nursing home living.

Sooner SUCCESS staff can assist with finding resources and information about Respite programs.

To address a consistent need for Respite Care across the state, Sooner SUCCESS coordinates the Lifespan Respite Grant Voucher Program, funded by ACL AoA and operated by DHS Aging Services.
