The Lifespan Respite Program pays for respite services to give the family caregiver a break. Respite means short-term relief to family caregivers from the demands of ongoing care for an individual with special needs.
Caregiving can be demanding. Getting respite care is important for your health and for your ability to continue to care for your loved one. Respite care provides relief for the family caregiver, whether it is for a few hours, a few days or a week. Take care of yourself!
- Lifespan respite will only provide services that are not covered through Medicaid services or other programs.
- Respite may be provided in the care receiver’s home or other caregiver-approved location. Families choose their own providers.
- The program provides up to $125 per client, per month.
