2019 Respite Awareness Day at The State House

January 22, 2019 8:37 pm
Each year, over 770,000 family caregivers in South Carolina provide 737 million hours of “free” services to chronically ill, disabled or frail elderly loved ones. If their services had to be replaced by care workers paid #10.04 per hour, the cost would be almost 7.4 billion each year.
Regularly scheduled breaks from providing care for a loved one result in quality care for the care recipient and the quality of life for the caregiver.
This event will be held on Wednesday, February 13, 2019 at The State House from 10 a.m. – 12 p.m. For more information visit screspitecoalition.org/. Call 803-935-5027 or email respite@screspitecoalition.org with any questions.
