Respit or GAP (when available) Respite helps provide a break for the caregiver by getting a homemaker into the home when needed or even placing the recipient in a facility for a short term (usually no longer than 5 days) stay. Services are limited are are based on a case by case situation. GAP service is available for assisting in a specific need that a caregiver of the recipient cannot afford in partial or full.
