Caring for a loved one takes a lot of time, energy and commitment. Even the most dedicated family member sometimes needs a break; respite care may be able to provide them with that.
Respite Care is intended to provide temporary substitute support for older persons in order to give a brief period of rest for family members and caregivers. While the Richland County Commission on Aging doesn't directly provide respite care, it can help assist with the costs associated with it when care is provided through the following providers:
Senior Companion Program (406-433-4967)
Sidney Health Center Golden Bridges Program (406-488-2300)
Respite care funds are limited so if you will be seeking financial assistance to cover a portion of the cost, please let your provider know immediately so they can contact the RCCOA for approval.
