Take a Break
Are you caring for a loved one with long-term physical or cognitive ailments? Are you experiencing anxiety, stress, or burn-out?
Our caregiver specialists can assist you in accessing the resources that may be available and provide ongoing support in your journey.
If you qualify for respite care services (see eligibility below), you may be able to receive a grant that will help to cover the costs of in-home services, adult day care, or overnight stay.
These services enable you to get a much-needed break from your caregiving responsibilities.
To talk with a caregiver specialist, call 828-692-4203 or send us an email.

If you or someone you know may qualify for a respite care grant, call our office or complete the application on the right.
