Welcome!  Need a break from caregiving?  Then, you have come to the right place.


The Delaware Lifespan Respite Care Network (DLRCN) is here to support you in your caregiving role by giving you the tools you need to effectively care for your loved one.  Our website is designed to help you understand what respite is and how the Delaware Lifespan Respite Care Network can provide financial assistance to fund your respite.

Still not sure if this is right for you?  Check out our Families page for more information on respite or contact us directly.  We would love to help.

Unfortunately, all the funds allocated for the DLRCN respite grants for the 2014-2015 funding cycle have been awarded. However, if you complete the Respite Contact Form below, you will be notified when/if new funding becomes available. We encourage you to complete this form so we can report the number of families in need of respite to our funding source. No personal information will be shared in this report. Although we are unable to provide respite funding at this time, our Case Manager, Joyce Medkeff, will be in contact with you regarding other resources that you might find helpful.
