Lifespan Respite

Description The Lifespan Respite program supports people who take care of individuals across the age and disability spectrum. It provides respite vouchers to eligible caregivers which allow them to pay for care for their loved ones while they take a break from their own caregiving responsibilities.
Eligibility Eligible persons are those caring for a child with disabilities, an adult with disabilities, or an older person. Also eligible are grandparents and other relatives aged 55+ who are raising other people's children (regardless of whether or not those children have disabilities). A care recipient must not otherwise be getting services through the Division of Developmental Disabilities Services (DDDS), hospice, Medicaid managed care, or Veterans Affairs (VA).
