Alzheimer’s Association Respite Application Now Online
The South Carolina Chapter provides short-term respite--time away from caregiving responsibility--for full-time family caregivers. A voucher for up to $500 worth of care is available once a year.
With your respite voucher, family members are able to arrange care through approved home care agencies, adult day care, or temporary placement in a long term care facility. The approved agency or facility will bill the association for up to $500 worth of services. The respite program is not designed to pay for services on a long term basis.
