Because caring for another requires caring for yourself.

Studies show that between 40 and 60 percent of family caregivers experience significant symptoms of stress, depression and physical exhaustion. Respite care services allow caregivers time to rest and recharge.

Let Home Care Assistance and The Women’s Alzheimer’s Movement help you take time off to relax, reflect and rejuvenate. Know your loved one is in trusted hands while you recharge.

Why respite care?

The Home Care Assistance Caregiver Recharge Grant program is our way to give back to the many family caregivers that give themselves to their aging loved ones.

We believe that in order to provide the best possible care, caregivers should prioritize their own health and well-being by taking essential time off. Our Caregiver Recharge Grants will be awarded four times a year to 25 family caregivers who would benefit from two consecutive days off from their caregiving responsibilities to rest and recharge. During this time, their loved one will receive hands-on care from an experienced Home Care Assistance caregiver.

Take care of yourself!

We are the official Caregiving Partner of the Women's Alzheimer's Movement
