Our mission is to help primary caregivers who are caring for someone with special needs in the same home. While the TRC can help with identifying the resources for your self-care plan, you are empowered to select the appropriate programs, facilities or individuals to care for your loved one during your break.

Our agency does not endorse or recommend any particular agency, facility or individual.

Let us help you. We’ve compiled a variety of services that can help meet your needs as a caregiver. We’re here for you if you want to talk to someone about TRC and what we can do for you, apply for vouchers, or find a senior companion to give you some time off from caregiving. These are the main services and resources we offer.

Call our Statewide Respite Helpline at (615) 269-8687. This is a toll-free information line that anyone can call to learn more about the TRC, access our 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 our office to begin the application.

Senior Volunteer 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 SeniorCorps through the Corporation for National and Community Service.

The project is funded under a Grant Contract with the State of Tennessee Department of Mental Health and Substance Abuse Services.
