The Need for Respite and Supplemental Service
Grandparents and other relative caregivers stepping in to raise their kin children can find the task at hand exhausting. Much has changed from the first time around raising children often leaving the relative caregiver in search of respite. An occasional break from caregiving enables the exhausted relative caregiver to regroup both physically and emotionally from his/her caregiving responsibilities. Senior Resources offers a wide range of support services that are funded by the National Family Caregiver Support Program.
Senior Resources provides services to assist older individuals, individuals with disabilities, their families and their caregivers. In addition, we provide funding to community-based agencies for services such as adult day care, homemakers, home health aides and transportation.
