What is Respite Care?

Respite Care is designed to offer short-term relief for family caregivers. 

Whether it’s a need for a short break, running errands, or an out-of-town trip, respite care ensures that the veteran is cared for. Suitable for veterans of any age, this program aims to ease the burden on caregivers.

What types of services are covered for Respite Care?

There are two types of respite care available to veterans.

  • Home Respite Care: This service facilitates either an aide coming to the veteran’s home or the veteran visiting an adult day health care program, allowing the family caregiver some time off.

    This service ensures the veteran continues with their normal life routines and has someone with them to talk to or interact with whilst their primary caregiver is either taking a break or is away attending to some other business.

  • Nursing Home Respite Care: In situations where the family needs to be out of town, this service provides care for the veteran in a nursing home setting.

    It’s essential to schedule this type of care in advance. Depending on the location, the available services may differ.

The primary aim of respite care is to support veterans who need assistance with daily tasks such as bathing, dressing, and meal preparations.

It’s also designed for veterans who feel isolated or have caregivers feeling overwhelmed. This service can be combined with other home and community-based services.

Am I eligible for Respite Care?

Every enrolled veteran potentially qualifies for respite care if they meet the clinical criteria for the service. Availability and the nature of services may vary depending on location.

A copayment might be applicable based on the veteran’s VA service-connected disability status and financial circumstances. For a clear understanding and to explore all available options, please consult your VA social worker or case manager.

Is Respite Care the right choice for me?

When you contact Charlin, our #1 focus will be to help you make the best decision for YOU. We start with an assessment called the Veteran Decision Aid for Care.  This, coupled with the Caregiver Self Assessment, offers both veterans and caregivers a comprehensive understanding of their needs

Our dedicated team at Charlin is ready to guide you through these choices. 

If respite care aligns with your needs, your VA social worker can help facilitate the necessary arrangements with us.
