Respite Care Reimbursement Available In Virginia

Posted: Updated:

RICHMOND, Va. (AP) - Reimbursements are being made available to Virginia families who care for a loved one with disabilities or chronic conditions.

The funds are being made available under a new limited voucher program from the state Department for Aging and Rehabilitative Services.

Officials say that, beginning Tuesday, caregivers can apply to receive up to $400 reimbursement for costs related to respite care.

The Lifespan Respite Voucher Program will distribute vouchers from a $179,000 federal grant that closes by the end of July.

The department says about 450 families could be helped by the program.
