You likely devote a great deal of time and energy to taking care of a loved one living with disabilities and special needs, but it’s so important that you take care of yourself, too! If you are not at your best, how can you give your best to the people you love? The Caregiver Respite Grant Program is here to help you do just that!
Our Caregiver Respite Grant Program (CRGP) provides financial support for family caregivers for up to five days of respite care within a 90-day period. The grant helps you pay for one-on-one personal care from the caregiver of your choice for your loved one living with disabilities or special needs.
This grant is available when financial support through other caregiver support or long-term care waiver programs are not available or have been used up.
What’s even better is that you can reapply for this grant every 180 days if you need the time for your own self-care. What a great way to recharge your batteries or spend some one-on-one time with another family member or friend for up to 10 days per year!
Imagine being able to:
• Take a special day to spend with another child in your family for some one-on-one quality time, so they feel important and loved.
• Going fishing with a buddy after years of not doing so because caring for your family member has required your constant attention.
• Just taking a few hours to get yourself a massage, run some errands, visit a park or catch up on some reading.
