TIME OUT RESPITE PROGRAM
Philadelphia, PA, USA.
College students are trained and supervised to provide elderly caregiver respite care for the Time Out Respite Program.
One student provides eldercare for a specific senior for length of semester.
Additionally, students may assist with meal preparation, laundry, changing bed linens, light grocery shopping, and assistance into the bathroom, as well as serve as medical escorts.
Students do not provide personal elder care such as bathing, dressing, feeding, cleaning, transportation, or administer medication or therapies.
The program is useful to medical students, those studying the field of geriatrics and all others who are interested.
The Time Out Respite Program has been in place since 1986 and has received the Generations United Program of Distinction recognition.
