Respite Volunteers of Shiawassee provides caring support to Shiawassee County adults with persistent health needs. Volunteers provide respite (a period of temporary rest or relief) to family and informal caregivers who may be experiencing exhaustion, isolation, and caregiver burnout. This temporary break from their care giving responsibilities enables caregivers to return refreshed and better able to cope with their situation. Respite Volunteers also visit elderly who live alone, helping them to remain living safely at home for as long as possible.
