    Intake Procedure

    Our customer is the person who is giving 24/7 unpaid care in the home to a family member or friend. We refer to them as "family caregivers." Our mission is to educate, encourage,and enable them to arrange for regular time off from their caregiving duties to care for their own needs in order to be the best family caregiver possible. Family caregivers may download the Respite Voucher Guidelines and a 5 page Voucher Application from our website or the family caregiver may call our office and we will send out the information via regular mail or e-mail.
