Adult Respite Care

Programs are offered in Summerville Monday-Thursday to give family caregivers a much-needed break from the stress of around-the-clock caregiving. Respite programs also keep loved ones with memory issues connected to their community through fellowship, meaningful activities and fun that enhances their independence and self-esteem.

Volunteers assist with respite care, often giving one-on-one attention to members.

All ARK respite programs are from 10 a.m. to 1:45 p.m. Please see below for information on other area respite programs.
