Alzheimer’s Respite Program

If you are a caregiver of someone with the diagnosis of: Alzheimer’s Disease, Multi-infarct dementia,
Parkinson’s Disease, Lewy Body Dementia, Huntington’s Disease, Normal Pressure Hydrocephalus, or Pick’s
Disease, you may be able to purchase respite services designed to provide a break, or a limited time of
caregiver relief, from the constant physical and emotional stress of caring for a person with Alzheimer’s
disease or a related disorder.

The program may subsidize the cost of services not to exceed an amount of up to $7,500 per year, however,
this funding is contingent upon available funding and subject to the applicant’s level of need as determined
by the Care Manager. Funding is available for respite services that include, but are not limited to: Adult Day
Care, Home Health Aide, Personal Care Assistant, Homemaker, Companion, Nursing Care, Personal
Emergency Response System or short term nursing home or assisted living care. Families may also choose a
Self-Directed option that allows them to hire a private caregiver through a fiduciary.

There are income and asset limits. For more information and/or to obtain an application, contact Senior
Resources at 860-887-3561.
