How Respite Impacts Family Health

Cancer touches every aspect of a family’s life.

Ensuring a family’s overall health is strong during the cancer journey is critical to coping with this disease in the best way possible.

Respite has therapeutic benefits that span from emotional to physical to psychosocial, with lots in between! And these benefits are not just for the patient, but also the caregiver and children of the patient.

The FPS Respite Model below outlines the impact of respite on family health and moreover, no family has a financial burden to experience respite. While on Travel Respite at Woodloch, families participate in carefully sourced activities that address the benefits, including meditation and chair yoga, cupcake wars, art therapy, nature walks and team building activities. The FPS Staycation Respite includes materials that address the areas of health outlined below within the confines of a family’s home. Together we make love greater than cancer!


Respite makes a difference, and we can prove it! Learn more about the difference on our impact page here.
