How to Find Respite Help for the Caregiver

"Caregivers, you need to take care of yourselves."
You know that. You  hear that and you read that all the time. The problem is, um, just how do you do that? Our elder(s) need you all the time. They can't afford to pay for in-home care. You don't even know where to start when it comes to taking care of yourself. A partial answer is free respite care, provided by people who can sit with your elder while you have some free time. Unfortunately, finding respite care isn't always easy. If you are fortunate enough to live in one of the states with a State Respite Coalition, under the umbrella of the Chapel Hill Training-Outreach Project, Inc., you are in luck. Many states are represented on this site, so please check there first.
