While taking care of a loved one it is important to also give yourself a break. Stickney Township’s respite program provides a needed break from caregiving for informal caregivers. This service is available seven days a week and can be used for as little as three hours, an entire day or even longer when the older adult requires 24-hour care. Trained home care aides provide companionship, supervision, meal preparation and some personal care.
To reach our Caregiver Specialist please call the Louis S. Viverito Senior Center (708) 636-8850.
