Respite Care may be provided by a trained caregiver for a few hours a week in the home, or through a temporary stay in an assisted living or nursing facility. To qualify, the unpaid caregiver must live with the care recipient and be authorized for services following an in-home assessment.

Lifespan Respite, for adults over 18 and under 60 who are not eligible for other programs, may also be available.

Call PCOA’s Helpline at (520) 790-7262.
