Caregivers often have difficulty finding time for themselves. Whether it’s a few hours to run errands or a long weekend away, caregivers can use our Caregiver Respite Program without worry about their loved one’s well-being.

Loved ones will be tenderly and expertly cared for while you are away. Respite help is available anywhere from a few hours to several days at a time. Whether you want some back up occasionally or regularly, our kind and caring home health aides are ready to provide relief and back up for you.

 

Grant Funds Relief for Caregivers

If you are the caregiver for someone, you may be eligible for a grant to pay for some respite. Several grants are available with varying eligibility criteria. Please contact Jenny at 268.9643 for information.

A special respite care grant is available to those with Parkinson’s disease. The grant is provided by the Wisconsin Chapter-American Parkinson Disease Association, and they have an application available for those interested in the grant.

The Wisconsin Chapter of the American Parkinson Disease Association is a not-for-profit, volunteer organization committed to raising public awareness of Parkinson’s disease and dedicated to easing the burden on a Parkinson patient, family and caregiver.
