WESCO’s Respite Care Program provides relief to those who are caring for family members who might otherwise require permanent placement in a facility outside the home. Respite programs provide breaks for caregivers of children and adults with disabilities both in and outside their home. Respite provides Individual and Group Respite.
Even though many families take great joy in providing care to their loved ones so that they can remain at home, the physical and emotional consequences for the family caregiver can be overwhelming without some support, such as respite. Respite provides a break for the family caregiver, which may prove beneficial to the health of the caregiver.
