Respite Care


Respite Care

Respite care provides caregivers with temporary relief from or assistance with the responsibility of home caregiving.
Some organizations such as Alzheimer's Association, Statewide Respite, and Hospice have grants for respite.
Inpatient/residential options are available at most assisted living, rehabilitation, and nursing homes.

JACC is a State-funded program that provides a broad array of in-home and community-based services to individuals age 60 and older who meet clinical eligibility for nursing home level of care and who desire to remain in their homes within the community. Jersey Assistance for Community Caregiving (JACC) can also offer respite services for caregivers if it is deemed a priority under the care recipient’s plan of care.
