We understand that caring for a person with a disability can take its toll, especially if you as the caregiver never has a break from those responsibilities. Our respite services give you a helping hand by providing trained staff who can step in for a brief period.
Easterseals Alaska provides respite services in various forms— in your home or in the community. We offer short-term or temporary care for loved ones so that their caregivers can take a much-needed break. Easterseals tailors respite services to meet individual family needs.
Our trained staff can provide high-quality care in the client’s home. Knowing that your loved one is cared for safely in your home, and in a manner you desire gives you peace of mind while you go out with friends, exercise, go shopping, or go to a movie — whatever you choose.
Our staff also can provide respite for caregivers by taking the clients on community outings, such as going to the park, shopping at the mall and much more. In addition to giving you time to focus on yourself or another family member, this type of respite also provides an enriching experience for the individual with a disability.
For more information about our services, please call Easterseals Alaska at 277-7325.
