The Tennessee Respite Coalition provides services to help you identify and utilize local resources.
- Call the Helpline Call the Statewide Respite Helpline at 1-888-579-3754. This is a toll-free information line that anyone can call to learn more about the TRC, access their programs, and get information about respite resources around the state.
- Voucher Program The Family Directed Respite Voucher program helps defray some of the cost of respite to family caregivers. It encourages families to be in control of and empowered to use respite as it meets their needs. Call their office at 615-269-8687 to begin the application.
- Senior Companion Program Senior Companions are volunteers who provide companionship to frail and vulnerable individuals who are dependent upon a full-time caregiver. Each volunteer provides a safe environment and a life-enriching relationship to those they serve. This program is a part of Senior Corps through the Corporation for National and Community Service.
