Volunteer Respite Care
Respite Care is a service that provides up to four (4) hours per week of in-home companionship, supervision and/or assistance with basic activities of daily living. This service is available for mentally and/or physically disabled and frail persons, age 60 or older, to provide the primary caregiver with relief from their around-the-clock caregiving responsibilities.
The service is provided by trained college interns and volunteers under the direction of the Department on Agings Volunteer Coordinator.
ELIGIBILITY: Persons 60 years of age or older who require constant supervision and/or care. A primary caregiver must reside in the home.
Volunteers are needed to provide Respite Care Services throughout Lenawee County.
PEACE OF MIND
No fee is charged for services, though contributions are encouraged so that Respite Care can be extended to others who are in need. The Lenawee Department on Aging is a non-profit organization. Consideration for memorial contributions is much appreciated. Our mission is To provide quality services that enable persons who are age 60 and over to live independently with dignity.
