Infomation about the survey
The purpose of the Wisconsin Respite Survey was to conduct a statewide survey of caregivers, respite providers, respite agencies, and care recipients in order to better understand how respite is used across Wisconsin. To the best of our knowledge, this was the first-ever statewide respite survey conducted in Wisconsin.
The Wisconsin Respite Survey highlights
- Combined demographics
- Care recipient characteristics,
- Agency characteristics,
- Respite use and availability,
- Quality of respite services.
The Wisconsin Respite Survey collected data from 700 total valid responses, most of whom were family caregivers. Care recipients, respite providers, and agencies also participate in the Survey. See the links below for that information.
The Wisconsin Respite Survey was conducted by the Whitmore Research Team at Marquette University in partnership with the Respite Care Association of Wisconsin. Funding for this project was provided by the Administration for Community Living.
