Respite Services


Respite is temporary care given inside or outside the home for seniors who cannot entirely care for themselves. Respite provides relief to caregivers. Respite Care Services, 184 Broad Street, Providence 02903 offers two programs.

Subsidized Respite Program: This program provides relief to primary caregivers who live with someone 55 years or older, in need of personal care assistance. In-home respite, adult day services, and overnight stays in assisted living facilities are provided on a cost-sharing basis.

Homemaking Program: Homemakers are available for a reduced hourly rate to anyone 55 or older and handicapped or disabled adults of any age whose incomes are within the guidelines of the RIPAE program.

This program recruits, trains, and matches respite homemakers with eligible clients. Homemakers can provide assistance with home maintenance or companionship. Call at 421-7833.
