Respite Care

Are you, or someone you know, taking care of a loved one? Are you feeling overwhelmed? Do you feel like you have the support you need? Caregivers and care receivers need breaks!  

It’s important to take care of your health and well-being before you can take care of your loved one’s health and well-being. 

Sunbeam Family Services is here for you. Qualified staff will come to your home and provide non-medical care for your loved one.  This supports caregivers like you by giving you the peace of mind that your loved one is safe, while also indulging in the self-care you deserve. The possibilities are endless! Relax, spend time with friends, and engage in activities that make you feel energized.   

This donation-based, Respite Caregiver Program is made possible thanks to the generous support from Areawide Aging Agency.
