Six States Awarded Lifespan Respite Care Program Grants

The Administration on Aging awarded grants of more than $1.1 million to six states to implement the Lifespan Respite Care Program in order to reduce family caregiver strain and increase the ability of a caregiver to continue to provide essential care.  Grant awards were made to Colorado, Hawaii, Montana, New Jersey, Ohio, and Virginia to expand and enhance respite care services to family caregivers of children or adults of all ages with special needs.  Grantees will also strengthen statewide dissemination and coordination of respite care, improve access to respite programs, and enhance the quality of respite care services.  Read more about the grants.
