In the Treasure Valley, Legacy Corps at Jannus Inc. provides volunteer-driven respite for caregivers of adults with an emphasis on aging veterans and military families. Respite is offered in-home and through groups in conjunction with Powerful Tools for Caregivers classes.

Also, In-home respite is provided by volunteers recruited as Americorps members, a program affiliated with the Corporation for National and Community Service. Legacy Corps has established a model program in Boise so that caregivers can attend training in one room while the people for whom they care are involved in volunteer-driven activities in another area of the facility.
