Respite Assistance Program
Text Size controlsNormal font sizeMedium font sizeLarge font size

While caregiving can be rewarding, it can also create tension and exhaustion. Without some time off, your mental and physical health becomes affected. This could reduce the quality of care for your loved one. The purpose the Respite Assistance Program is to provide family caregivers time to do necessary or desired activities. The program helps pay for care for your loved one while you get a short break, respite. The program can allow you to do things such as; go to the beauty shop, have lunch with a friend, maintain your garden, visit your physician, take a nap, and more. With this program we hope to ease the burden on families by helping with some of the costs. 

The Central and Western KS Chapter provides assistance, contingent on the availability of funds. Funding is available through the generosity of our RCR Memorial Golf Tournament, Bogner Grant (29 counties in western Kansas) and the IIIA Older American Act. To see which grant fits you, contact us at 316.267.7333!
