Caregiving can place high demands on family members or other caregivers. Respite support is a service that provides a temporary break between the family caregiver and the care recipient.
You are a caregiver if you are caring for a loved one, even if you are married to them, or if they are a parent, child, neighbor or friend.
Give yourself a break. If you do not have informal supports available or feel you need more structured respite care, Connect to Care can help. As the Aging and Disability Resource Center (ADRC) for Dallas County, we partner with local community-based organizations who provide respite support to caregivers, and can help navigate available local resources.
