Focus On The Caregiver
Welcome back to the Florida Respite Coalition and the Focus on the Caregiver! The mission of the Florida Respite Coalition has, and will continue to be, to support caregivers and promote quality respite care to individuals with special care needs throughout the state. We are now able to expand our interest to reflect care giving throughout the lifespan of individuals who need assistance. Through donations, grants, and advertising, we can maintain our website and expand information and respite resources. The Board remains committed to the caregivers of our state. The website is operated by volunteers who give generously of their time and talents to maintain and update the website. We welcome respite providers and others to nominate care providers for our Caregiver Locator. If you have articles of interest, or would like to donate to the coalition, please contact us at Contact@FloridaRespite.ORG.
What Is Respite?
Respite is time taken by a caregiver for rest and rejuvenation. It is temporary, short-term relief that provides a break from the extraordinary demands of ongoing care for an individual with disabilities, special needs or chronic illness. FRC believes every caregiver deserves a break. Please use our list of resources for respite care as a guide to find the best possible care for your loved one.
The Florida Respite Coalition welcomes you to our new Web site. The site includes stories about caregivers and respite providers along with information on how to hire a caregiver and where to get details about services. To celebrate our 10th Anniversary this year we have updated our site to help caregivers cope with the most demanding job in the world.
