Respite Care Program
Caring Together in Hope provides financial assistance to individuals with financial need to help pay for respite care by certified professionals. Our aim is to support the caregiver and prevent or delay the admission of a loved one to a long-term care facility. Additional support may also include care giving classes, transportation, special family events and other family caregiver needs.
To receive respite care, the individual must:
- Have a diagnosis of dementia or a related disorder that requires constant supervision. Documentation of a physician’s diagnosis will be required.
- The recipient must have limited financial resources.
- Have a full-time unpaid caregiver.
- Not be participating in a Medicaid waiver program.
- Live at home.
The maximum benefit payable to licensed service providers will not exceed $500 per year. Exceptions will always be considered and is at the discretion of the Board of Directors.
