Maine Parkinson Society has long recognized the need for quality respite care in the Parkinson community and is pleased to offer a program to extend in-home respite care to any interested caregiver of a person with PD. MEPS respite funds are intended to ease the caregiving process and reduce caregiver stress.
To gain access to our respite care funding, a care recipient must be diagnosed with Parkinson's disease and be in need of assistance at home. Respite care is intended to be temporary in nature and serves as a short term opportunity for caregiver rest and relief from their responsibilities.
How it Works
If you are interested in being placed on our service list, please complete our printable respite care application below and either mail or fax to us using our contact info on the left hand side of your screen. Applications are reviewed on a monthly basis. If your application is approved, Maine Parkinson Society will contact you to initiate care services.
