This respite survey is for family caregivers of DDA clients who are not receiving a DDA paid service, and are on the No Paid Services caseload. Individuals on the No Paid Services caseload are DDA eligible clients who are not receiving any paid services from DDA. 

If you are caring for a loved one and feel like you need a break, there may be options out there for you.  This survey is designed to get you thinking about respite services and to help you identify available respite options you may not be aware of.

Respite care is an intermittent break, designed to give a caregiver (family or friend) brief personal time away from the daily tasks of caregiving.  Respite care is provided either in-home or out-of-home. Some services may be available to families through formal, often publically-funded programs, or may be available to families through informal networks.  Respite is typically offered by community organizations or businesses such as recreational programs, adult day centers, nursing homes, faith communities, or home health care agencies. These organizations provide either a paid staff or trained volunteer to provide respite care.

Your input is important and will help us better understand and respond to the needs and challenges of caregivers! Please take a few minutes to complete this short survey, and to share the survey link with others you think may want to participate.
