Seniors in Service
A Community Endowment grant was given to Seniors in Service for their Respite Voucher Program, a grant-funded respite voucher service to live-in caregivers who need a break. For those who qualify, a voucher of $1000, may be available to pay for care. Family caregivers can use the voucher all at once to provide care while they take a brief vacation or they may use it throughout the year for occasional days away or evenings out. Those served are live-in caregivers of persons over the age of 60 who need assistance in most activities of daily living and are a safety risk if left alone. Qualifications and restrictions apply.
