Respite Care Financial Reimbursement Program

The Alzheimer's Family Organization offers a Respite Care Financial Assistance Program which provides a monetary reimbursement to caregivers for respite costs. Respite Care is “time off” for the caregiver. The well-being of the caregiver contributes greatly to the well-being of the loved one. Respite services allow caregivers to receive much needed relief and time to do necessary and enjoyable activities.
