The Center for Disabilities Studies and Easter Seals Delaware and Maryland’s Eastern Shore formed the Delaware Caregivers Support Coalition (DCSC). As part of the group’s objectives they chose to implement the recommendations of the "Respite Care in Delaware" report: the survey of respite needs and existing services. The DCSC surveyed both families and current providers about respite services in order to gain a better understanding of the state of respite care in Delaware. This document reports how those surveys were conducted and the findings from those surveys.
