Teresian House Community Outreach Respite Program

Are you feeling stressed from day-in, day-out round-the-clock care of supervision of an elderly relative? Are you unable to take a weekend away or a short vacation for lack of trustworthy alternate care arrangements? Thanks to generous funding through the Troy Savings Bank Foundation, Teresian House is offering a program to give assistance to those in need of temporary respite care that are either unable to afford the daily rate and are currently not enrolled in Medicaid.
