The long hours and hard work of caring for an older adult can be challenging, and we encourage caregivers to give themselves time off. Ask us if you’re eligible for our free respite services, which may be able to pay for older adult in-home care or facility care.
The constant demands of caregiving can cause physical and mental stress that leads to various health issues, sleep disruptions and other problems. Through our respite services, you’ll be able to take a well-deserved break knowing that your loved one will be cared for.
The respite program is made possible through Interfaith and the Milwaukee County Department on Aging.

“The help I’ve received has enabled me to effectively care for my mother at home while still maintaining my career. I learned I can have a life aside from my role as caregiver by utilizing respite services and other resources.” – Tom N.
