Respite Care Charleston (RCC) provides social day programs, support groups for early stage Alzheimer’s disease, and caregiver support groups for individuals and families affected by memory disorders. Participants in our respite programs enjoy memory stimulating socialization, music therapy and gentle exercise; family caregivers benefit from a much-needed break. Respite care is a short break from caregiving, and helps support and strengthen families, allowing the continuation of care in the home.
Since 1996, we’ve been committed to helping families in Charleston County who face the challenges of dealing with Alzheimer’s and other dementias. Our services are structured to help individuals and families from the beginning, during early diagnosis and throughout the continuum of care. If you or a family member has recently been diagnosed and you’re wondering what’s next, we’re here to help.
Respite Care Charleston is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization, tax id number 45-1535756.
