Ease the Day: Caregiver Respite Support Program

We know it is an honor to care for loved ones. We also know that caregivers need breaks! The Ease the Day Program is an initiative that gives family caregivers and their older adult loved ones (55 and better) a much-needed break without worry or guilt. Contact the Chelsea Senior Center if you are a caregiver seeking respite. We are here to help!

The Ease the Day: Caregiver Respite Support Program* has opportunities to meet the complex needs of caregivers:

  • Onsite Ease the Day is an adult day program at the Center on Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and Thursdays
  • In-home companion care
  • In-home skilled support care 
  • Resource navigation and advocacy to help connect to other community resources.

*Intake assessments must be done to determine eligibility. Some service limitations apply. 

Ease the Day has become a valuable part of our community and we need to make it sustainable so it can continue to be accessible to all. If you are able to make a Suggested Contribution for the respite you’ve received, please do so.  While the going rate is in the range of $35 per hour, we suggest a contribution in the range of $5 to $20 per hour. The amount of contribution should be made at your sole discretion based on the value you put on the respite relief we provide and your ability to contribute. Contributions can be mailed in or made in person by cash, check, or charge. Please indicate that it is for Ease the Day program services received.  Checks should be made out to Chelsea Senior Center.

Registration is now open. Call 734.475.9242 and ask for Lisa or Katie or email caregiversupport@chelseaseniors.org
