In-Home Respite

We have such great admiration for those who provide ongoing care for the elders in their family. But even these compassionate individuals need a break to tend to other matters in their lives or to get much needed rest.

Nursing Home residents in Gardens

Eligible families and caregivers can receive the support of our respite care services to assist an elder person and allow the caregiver some time away.

 Did You Know?

The service not only helps give the qualified caregiver a well-deserved break, it helps seniors stay in their own homes where they are most comfortable and out of nursing homes and hospitals. TCOA provided services to 77 unduplicated clients for a total of 18,522 units of service last year.

Just a quick thanks for the wonderful collection of goods you delivered to us this past month. Such a thoughtful thing to do! I frequently saw we have the best council of all, and this gift verifies it. Once again, Thanks.

Thanks to Council on Aging. I know that this is little but I still want to thank you. The lunches you bring me mean so much. I have so many problems standing in one place to even cook a meal. I also want to thank you for my birthday gift. It was such a wonderful surprise. Thank you. I bless you all for the wonderful job you are doing. God bless you and keep you all safe. I love you all.

Just want to thank you for the most thoughtful gift basket for Mrs. I.S. on her 95th birthday. It really cheered her up and made her day extra special. Thanks also for the meals you provide and the courteous driver who delivers them everyday with always a smile and a kind word! It means a lot to those who are homebound. Again, thanks for all that you do.

On behalf of the Veterans of this area we wish to thank you for the assistance with hot meals for our homeless Veterans. You do so much for our seniors, but to help veterans too, goes above and beyond the call. Thank you again for your help. God Bless America and supporters like you.
