Respite Services for People with Disabilities and Their Families

Easterseals is proud to offer respite services that allow both caregivers and the people for whom they're caring the opportunity to relax, recharge, and reconnect. Our respite services are offered nationwide and designed to give caregivers a much needed break from the stress of caregiving.

Respite programs include activities like support groups and retreats for caregivers, and sleep away camps and overnight stays for the person receiving care.
