The Adult Respite Program is open to participants who are age 18 and older. Through the program, residents of eligible counties (listed below) are provided with financial reimbursement for money spent on in-home care, adult daycare, or a short stay in a licensed facility. Eligible participants are required to arrange and pay for respite services, but will be reimbursed on a monthly basis until the maximum allowance of hours for the fiscal year has been met. Beginning on July 1, 2015, each eligible caregiver will be provided with up to 62.5 hours of reimbursement at $8.00 an hour, totaling $500.00.
