Providing a "Gift of Time" for 23 Years
1993 - 2016

Mission Statement

"A gift of time and caring support to adults with persistent health needs, and their families

Respite Volunteers of Shiawassee is an interfaith non-profit agency which places trained volunteers with families who live in Shiawassee County,  Michigan. Volunteers provide friendly visits and help to adults with ongoing health needs, and respite to their family caregivers.

Volunteers are asked to provide one to four hours companionship to the person who is ill. This gives the caregiver a much needed respite to: take a nap, go for a walk, grocery shop, meet friends for lunch, go to a doctor's appointment, run errands, or whatever will relieve their caregiving duties.

Thank You Notes & Quotes
From Those We Serve

“Respite gives us a break from our loved one and just as importantly, our loved one a break from us as caregivers.”

“I moved my Grandma in with us after her post-surgery and her dementia was getting worse. I would never give up on her or put her anywhere. It helps that the volunteer makes me feel less alone in this though.”

“The volunteers have given me a few hours each week for myself, my patience level has
increased tremendously.”
