What is Respite?

Being a family caregiver, while a fulfilling role, can consume a great deal of physical, mental, and emotional energy. Respite simply means an interval of rest or relief. The ALS Association will reimburse a partner agency in your area to step in as caregiver for up to 18 hours each month so that you can take a break.
