is regular temporary breaks from care giving for a person (of any age) having a disability, special need or chronic illness.  Respite is an essential service that keeps families together by protecting the health and mental health of the caregiver.  Whether you are a parent caring for a child with disabilities or a spouse or adult child caring for someone with Alzheimer’s, respite can help you continue caring for your loved one at home.

The SC Respite Coalition works to help families and caregivers get the breaks they need.  We are currently working to increase awareness of the needs of families within the faith community.  The SC Respite Coalition brings people together from different faiths to assist them in providing respite for those in need of a break within their own faith communities.  _____________________________________________________________________________________________________
