Living At Home Respite Care

Our respite program is designed to give the primary caregiver a break or “respite” from their responsibilities. Trained volunteers come to your home to provide a safe environment and informal care for your frail or disabled elderly loved one.

Who can use this program? The care receiver needs to be 60 years of age or older. The caregiver can be any age.

What do the volunteers do? Volunteers provide companionship, supervision and safety for your family member. They can do light meal preparation, remind your loved one to take medications, and assist with other activities. Volunteers do not dispense medications, do bathing, bathroom hygiene or heavy lifting.

How are the volunteers trained? The volunteers receive training through Living at Home. Further orientation for the specific respite care assignment is given by the primary caregiver. Background checks are completed on all volunteers.

"SAVE THE DATE" June 15, 2018 is our next Famous Rib Dinner. It will be held at the PR American Legion from 4:30-7:00. Come on out and have a great meal and great conversation with great friends. All in an effort to raise money so that Living at Home can keep doing what they do: help seniors so they can remain living in the home of their choice. Please tell your friends! We can't wait to see you all in June!
