Respite care option #8: Respite locator service
How it helps: The National Respite Locator Service helps caregivers and professionals find respite services in their local area to match their specific needs for emergency or planned respite care. Although it doesn't provide an exhaustive list of all possible providers, it can be a helpful source in helping to jump-start a search.
What it costs: The service is free; the cost of respite services varies greatly. About 30 states run Lifespan Respite Programs funded by the Administration on Aging that helps fund local respite services.
