What is The Respite Care and Wellness Program?
The Respite Care and Wellness Program has been designed to help family caregivers learn about and experience the importance of respite care services when the family member is providing primary care giving services for someone with Alzheimer’s disease or dementia. The program offers family caregivers information about available community respite care resources such as home health care, adult day care and residential respite, as well as a one-time financial scholarship to help offset the cost of respite care.
Funding for The Respite Care and Wellness Program is limited, so we do not guarantee that an applicant will receive a financial scholarship. However, we encourage you to apply. If funding is not available when you apply, your application will be kept on file until June 30” following your date of application. Applicants will be required to complete and submit a new application after June 30″ if they are still interested in being considered for the Program.
