Department for Aging and Rehabilitative Services (DARS) Lifespan Respite Voucher Program has funding available to provide reimbursement of up to $400 per year per for the primary family caregiver of an individual in need of respite services. Note these three important requirements:
- the primary family caregiver and the care recipient must reside in the Commonwealth of Virginia;
- the primary family caregiver must reside in the same physical location as the person receiving / needing respite services; and
- if the family currently receives respite services, funds cannot be used to replace current funding for respite/daycare or to pay for respite just to allow the caregiver to work. Funding must be used to provide services that allow the caregiver to take a break from caregiving duties: it must go “above and beyond” what is currently being received.
