Who is a Caregiver?


You or someone you know is a caregiver.


Caregivers provide around the clock assistance for a family member, loved one, or other individual with a disability, chronic illness or life-changing injury.  


What is Respite?

 
Respite services, planned or emergency, provide caregivers a needed break from their ongoing responsibilities, enabling them to keep their family unit intact and healthy.  

To be most effective, you should consider respite services much earlier than you think you will need them. Respite will be most helpful if you use it before you become exhausted, isolated, and overwhelmed by your responsibilities.

Respite services can be beneficial, meaningful, and enjoyable to both the caregiver and the care receiver. Lifespan respite acknowledges that families looking for respite services share a common need regardless of the age or diagnosis of the individual that requires care.
