What You'll Get


The Issue: Unpaid Family Caregivers Need Breaks

According to a report posted by the ARCH National Respite Network, an estimated 65.7 million people in the United States serve as unpaid family caregivers to an adult or child; there are 1,650,000 family caregivers in Tennessee. Of these caregivers, nearly 90% who are caring for someone older than age 18 do not seek respite services, and 81% of caregivers of children under the age of 18 do not use respite.

The Campaign: Provide Caregivers with Temporary Respite

For every $5 this Grassroots campaign raises, the Tennessee Respite Coalition (TRC) can provide a family caregiver with an hour of temporary respite.

You can follow the progress of this and other Grassroots campaigns at the Groupon Grassroots website.

About Tennessee Respite Coalition


The Tennessee Respite Coalition (TRC) works with family caregivers across the state of Tennessee to help provide them with short-term, temporary relief from their duties caring for adults or children with disabilities or special needs. Temporary relief can enable caregivers to satisfy their own needs and get a much-needed break from the demands of providing ongoing care. 

TRC assists caregivers who look after individuals of any age, and allows them to choose their own respite provider. While their loved ones are cared for, caregivers may engage in a variety of activities, from taking a trip to spending time with other family members and catching up on other errands such as grocery shopping. In the past year, TRC has provided more than 200 families across the state of Tennessee with access to respite services.
