Caregiver Respite

Family caregivers deserve to take a break. Call us about respite.

What is Respite?

As a caregiver, you are allowed to take breaks! Respite is the care of your loved one by another person, letting you take a break. Respite can be provided by a friend, neighbor, a day center, or a home care agency.

Our Programs:

The Arizona Caregiver Coalition (ACC) administers the Lifespan Respite grant in partnership with the Arizona Department of Economic Security (DES). Funding comes from the Administration for Community Living (ACL). The respite program is at no cost to family caregivers who do not receive respite from other federal or state programs. 

  1. Adult Day Health Centers: Your family member has a safe place to go while you (the caregiver) enjoy a break from caregiving. We pay the day center for up to 96 hours.
  1. Respite Voucher: You arrange for respite, usually in your own home. You can hire an agency, or you can ask a trusted friend or neighbor to come and stay with your family member. You pay them, then you send us the receipt and timesheet and we reimburse you.
Qualifications for the respite programs:
  1. Caregiver must live full-time with the family member (care recipient).
  2. Caregiver and care recipient can not be receiving any other respite services paid with federal, state or insurance funds.
  3. The care recipient needs constant care and cannot be left alone.
  4. For ADHC only: The caregiver is not working outside the home.
