Project Overview:

The Alabama Department of Senior Services (ADSS), in partnership with Alabama Lifespan Respite Resource Network, the Alabama Respite Coalition, and the Alabama Disability Resource Centers (ADRC), proposes to expand lifespan respite in Alabama as a result of a grant with the Administration on Aging (AOA). The primary goal of this project is to provide a statewide, comprehensive, and coordinated approach to meet the respite care needs of Alabama family caregivers of individuals with disabilities and chronic conditions regardless of age, income, race, ethnicity, special needs, or situation.

Survey:
The Alabama Department of Senior Services in collaboration with the University of Alabama at Birmingham (UAB) is conducting a statewide needs assessment survey of family caregivers and service providers. These surveys serve as guides in helping agencies such as ADSS; determine the current respite care needs of Alabama family caregivers. Armed with such information, ADSS and its many partners can provide a more comprehensive and coordinated statewide approach in administering resources and services that most effectively meet the respite care needs of family caregivers.
