Respite (RESS’-pit): Respite is planned or emergency services that provide a caregiver of a child or adult with a special need some time away from caregiver responsibilities for that child or adult, and which result in some measurable improvement in the well-being of the caregiver, care receiver, and/or family system.

The Arkansas Lifespan Respite Coalition’s goal is to improve awareness and access of respite information to family caregivers across all age and disability spectrums. This coalition partners with the Department of Human Services-Arkansas Take the Time Lifespan Respite program. Even the most amazing caregivers need a temporary break now and then to take time for themselves and to seek needed assistance and support. The coalition serves as a strong voice for respite throughout the state to promote awareness and help caregivers locate respite care services in their communities. Find out more here:
