ADRC of the Capital Area gets respite care grant

Wednesday, February 25, 2015

The Department of Aging and Disability Services (DADS) awarded a $15,500 grant to the Aging and Disability Resource Center of the Capital Area to provide emergency and urgent respite services to family caregivers.

The grant will fund a project that is multifaceted and designed to provide caregivers with limited access to services, urgent or emergency respite in rural and urban areas. The project will serve Bastrop, Blanco, Caldwell, Fayette, Hays, Lee, Travis and Williamson counties. It will target the isolated, multi-cultural, non-English speaking informal, unpaid caregivers caring for individuals of any age with any disability or condition requiring care.

The resource center is developing an outreach plan and working with DADS on program implementation.

Funds are through the 2015 Lifespan Respite Care Program Grant from the Administration for Community Living to support building sustainable community-based respite care services in Texas.
