Respite & Kinship Support

Many family caregivers do not see themselves as caregivers so they do not seek out supports and services available to them through Washington’s caregiver programs. These programs can provide respite and services to caregivers committed to helping their loved one remain in their home for a longer period of time. Washingtonians caring for loved ones may be able to receive support for doing so, which can help support them as they care for their loved one.
