Respite Care Grants

We all know that one way for caregivers to be good caregivers is to take care of themselves.  Sometimes taking a little time off can be helpful for everyone and there are many options in the Greater Rochester area to provide respite either for a few hours or for a few days.  However, for some households the cost keeps them from taking advantage of those resources.  NPF Greater Rochester has initiated a respite care grant to help in those instances.

Grants of up to $500 are available to help defray costs of giving a caregiver a break. If you have the ability to pay or if there is a program already available to help you, then take advantage of the program and give yourself as a caregiver a rest.  If funds are keeping you from getting a break, then apply for one of our grants.  The money can be used to pay for a few hours several times or for several days.
