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.
