Tennessee Respite Coalition's Fundraiser:

Recharge Caregivers with Respite

Tennessee Respite Coalition's Photo

THE STORY:

What would you do if your supervisor came to your office and told you that your job schedule had changed? You are now working 24 hours a day, 7 days a week and you cannot leave the office unless someone comes to relieve you. That schedule is the life of a family caregiver. Respite is temporary relief for family caregivers and allows them a much needed break from the stresses of caring for their loved one.

The Tennessee Respite Coalition provides resources that empower caregivers to reclaim a little piece of themselves and restore balance to their lives and relationships. For every five dollars you give to the Tennessee Respite Coalition, a caregiver will receive an hour of respite.

Listen to the voices of caregivers about how important respite is to them:

“Respite has given me time to focus on me and not feel guilty about it. The TRC gives me the choice to choose who I want to care for my mother and how I want to use my respite.” - Caregiver

“Respite has helped me keep my sanity and allowed my family to have balance again. ” - Caregiver

"Before receiving respite, I rarely took time out for myself, and I realize that having time away is beneficial to everyone in the house." - Caregiver

The Tennessee Respite Coalition serves the entire state of Tennessee with only three, full-time staff. Our team assists caregivers caring for individuals with special needs of all ages. Whether you are a mom taking care of your child with autism, or a son taking care of his aging mother with Dementia, the Tennessee Respite Coalition is here to help you with the gift of time.

When we are taking care of someone else the last thing on our mind is to stop and take care of ourselves. Thanks Linda for the work you do in making sure caregivers can take some time to recharge so they can better help their loved ones! 3 years ago
