The Department of Health Services is trying to gauge how many providers in Wisconsin provide short-term (2-3 days) respite care. They hope to evaluate the availability of respite care in Wisconsin, especially for people with Dementia, as part of the Wisconsin Dementia Care System Redesign initiative.
Please contact Lynn Gall, Alzheimer’s & Family Caregiver Coordinator, at the Office on Aging, Wisconsin Department of Health Services if you provide respite care at your community. This information will be used to build the workgroup’s initiatives.
You can also submit your ideas about increasing awareness about the short-term respite availability at your communities to Lynn Gall.
