While WMEC doesn’t, we work with partner agencies who can provide someone, or you can choose to use a family member or friend.
Our Family Caregiver Specialist will assess your needs. Approved caregivers will be assigned a total number of hours to be used for respite care. You choose when and how often you use those hours.
The CARE program requires no income information to be supplied.
There is no fee for the CARE program.
