We understand the unique challenges of being a caregiver for a family member with a disability or disease.  Respite means relief.  We view respite as a temporary therapeutic separation for both the caregiver and the family member.  It eases the stress at home while providing the person with a disability personalized attention by trained and skilled professionals.  Our respite program began in 1995; since then we have been able to provide thousands of hours of respite care breaks for families.  We would be happy to discuss our respite program for your family.


Respite is...

  • A support service for families
  • In-home based care for a child or adult with a disability
  • Provided by trained professionals
  • For Jackson County Residents
  • 2 to 8 hour shifts with a total of 8 hours per month provided
  • At a reasonable cost of $7 to $12 dollars per hour determined on a sliding scale by household income.
