Respite News April 2014 - Respite Summit, New Voucher Funds, and more
The Respite Coalition again has funds for family caregivers caring for elders, as well as a little left for younger and midlife populations. This is for the family caregiver to take a break, not just for bills or to go to work. The focus is on those taking care of someone who can't be left for any length of time or overnight.
The eligibility information and application are on the website. Family caregivers who have received a voucher from the Aging & Disability Resource Center recently should just call us for a consent form and may not need to complete another.
