Obviously, those working at GCSS are familiar with Respite Care, but for those who aren’t, it consists of short-term or temporary care of the sick or disabled, in order to give “respite” (relief) to the normal caregiver (in most cases, a family member).
The Georgia Respite Summit’s purpose is to bring care providers as well as other interested groups together to compare notes on Respite Care; with our combined efforts, we will come up with solutions as to how we can best provide quality respite care in the future.
The Summit will be held:
