Ohio Respite Coalition Survey

Please fill out this short survey to help the Ohio Respite Coalition identify barriers in respite.  Forward on to anyone you think may be interested or may be able to provide valuable input.

The Ohio Respite Coalition is conducting this short online survey ( to ask about the barriers families, providers and agencies experience or perceive in asking for caregiver assistance.

The information collected will be used to identify areas currently lacking respite services and the barriers that keep families from asking for the services they need. Based on the information received, the Ohio Respite Coalition will develop an action plan to address the barriers to respite in Ohio.

The Ohio Respite Coalition is conducting this survey as part of the Lifespan Respite Initiative grant, funded by the U.S. Administration on Aging. We are working to better coordinate existing state respite services and develop appropriate services to support the growing number of family caregivers across the lifespan.

If you have any questions, please contact: Jessica Hawk,, 614-752-3516
