Colorado Respite Coalition, a program of Easterseals Colorado

What is the Colorado Respite Coalition?

A program of Easterseals Colorado, the Colorado Respite Coalition (CRC) is a vital statewide resource for caregivers of individuals of all ages with extensive care needs. Working with a coordinated coalition of community partners, we promote awareness of and access to respite care services and resources that help improve the quality of life for caregivers and the individuals they care for.

What is Caregiving? In Colorado alone, there are an estimated 584,000 caregivers (AARP). A caregiver is someone who provides care and support for a friend or relative of any age with any extensive care needs. 

What is Respite? Respite is a short break for caregivers. Respite is the opportunity for a caregiver to step away, knowing that their loved one is well cared for, by bringing in professional care.


Our Programs

The CRC provides respite resources, information and referrals to support family caregivers accessing respite services. The CRC also operates programs to further increase respite access and awareness across the state, serving all ages and all special healthcare needs.

Family Caregivers

Respite care for you = better care for your loved one.
Respite care allows family caregivers to rest and renew, to help support and maintain their well-being. Family caregivers face unique joys and challenges in their care for loved ones. The CRC helps connect family caregivers with respite resources and information. The CRC support family caregivers caring for loved ones of any age and any extensive care needs.


A respite provider is an individual that provides temporary relief to family caregivers by offering in-home or out-of-home care to the individual with special health care needs. This direct service gives family caregivers a break to rejuvenate and refresh. Respite providers work as full-time professionals, part-time employees, and volunteers.
