Need a break from caregiving? You have come to the right place!

We are here to support you in your caregiving role by giving you the tools you need to effectively care for your loved one(s).  Our website is designed to help you understand what respite is and how we can provide financial assistance to help fund your respite.


Thank you for your interest in applying for financial assistance through the Delaware Lifespan Respite Care Network (DLRCN).  At this time, all the funds allocated for the DLRCN Respite Grant have been awarded.  However, we still encourage you to click here and fill out this Respite Contact Form so we can notify you when the new grant cycle starts in fall 2016. This is not a waitlist, rather, it will be used to notify you when our new grant becomes available. In addition, it provides information for our funders about the overwhelming need for respite in Delaware. 

Our Case Manager, Joyce Medkeff, will contact you regarding general caregiver resources that you might find helpful, or you can contact her at 302-221-2076. If you have any additional Respite questions, please contact our office at            302-221-2087.


We are currently accepting Relative Respite applications for 2015 – 2016 grant cycle.  Find out if you qualify!
