Free in-home respite care openings

The Ohio University Respite Volunteer Program currently has openings for free respite care. 

The Respite Volunteer Program is a free in-home relief and interaction-focused program.  Volunteers provide a break for caregivers of adults with disabilities and other challenges by providing personalized care and social interaction in the home.  Excursions outside the home may also be possible. Caregivers have the option of leaving or remaining with the volunteers. Adults living alone or in residential facilities are welcome to participate. Families and student volunteers benefit mutually. 

Interested caregivers should contact the programs' supervisor, Dr. Brooke Hallowell at 740-593-1356.
