Respite Well

Program Description

  • Description. A San Diego County voucher pilot program providing respite for caregivers of those with Alzheimer’s Disease and Related Dementias (ADRD).
  • Costs. The voucher is intended as a subsidy with the County of San Diego Health and Human Services Agency, Aging & Independence Services contributing 50% to respite expenses. The remaining cost to voucher recipients in 2020 is as follows:
    • Home Care, per hour: $14.62
    • Adult Day Program, per full day: $58.48
    • Assisted Living, per night: $133.75
  • Qualification.  To qualify, a patient must have some type of ADRD (where most cognitive impairment qualifies) and the primary caregiver must demonstrate some level of stress related to the situation.
  • Benefits. After a screening by Coast Care Partners, recipients will receive one service under one of the following levels:
    • Silver 
      • Home Care: 4 hours of care weekly
      • Adult Day Program: 1 day of care weekly
      • Assisted Living: 1 week of care, every 4 months
    • Gold
      • Home Care: 8 hours of care weekly
      • Adult Day Program: 2 days of care weekly

    • Crisis
      • Home Care: Up to 72 hours, 16 hours/week minimum
      • Assisted Living: 1 week, to be utilized upon program entry
  • Waitlist. From time to time and as funding permits, entry into the program may not be immediately available. While pending program entry, Home Care Services are available at CCP standard rates. Applicants may join the waitlist with or without receiving care at standard rates. Upon removal from the waitlist and entry to the program, service must be initiated within 7 days.  As a pilot program, we are unable to reasonably forecast the length of time you may be on the waitlist, but at this time we estimate that the wait will be approximately 2 weeks.  We expect to have a more accurate estimate soon.  We thank you in advance for your patience and understanding.
