Ease the Day: Caregiver Respite Support Program

The Chelsea Senior Center is excited to launch the Ease the Day: Caregiver Respite Support Program. Caregiving is a challenging act of love and takes its toll on the mind, body, and spirit of caregivers. We know the needs of caregivers are extensive, complex, and great. As such we strategically partnered with like-minded, senior-focused organizations including Catholic Social Services, Jewish Family Services, Silver Maples, and Chelsea Hospital Ministerial Association to be able to provide several opportunities for respite. Together with our partners and volunteers, we will work to meet these needs and bridge the gap in respite care options in Western Washtenaw County. Learn more.

Many thanks to our funders: 2022 Exhale, the Family Caregiver Initiative, the Ralph C. Wilson, Jr. Foundation, Health Foundation for Western & Central New York, Ann Arbor Area Community Foundation, and managed by The Philanthropic Initiative (TPI).  Exhale, the Family Caregiver Initiative, is dedicated to offering innovative solutions that give caregivers of older adults an opportunity to breathe a little easier.
