This is an excellent interview, Denise! I'd like to see something similar initiated in Texas. Since our Governor is in a wheelchair, I'm quite sure he'd support it. Texas does have a respite program for caregivers in place called \"Take Time Texas\". I'm still researching that program. So far, it looks like it only covers large urban areas. Texas is a big state. We need to get services to caregivers in small rural areas too. That will be quite a challenge. I'd like to be a part of making that happen.
