Respite Care

Respite provides relief to people who are caring for individuals with Alzheimer's disease or a related dementia. Time away from caregiving responsibilities is essential to the well being of caregivers.  Respite care helps to reduce caregiver stress and assists with keeping individuals with Alzheimer's disease at home as long as possible.

Currently, we have several respite care scholarships available for residents of the following counties:

  • Midland
  • Gladwin
