(This amendment provides funding to the Department for the Aging to increase the amount of adult day care/respite care delivered by area agencies on aging. This type of care provides family caregivers with critical relief, and serves as an alternative to nursing home placement. This amendment provides funds in addition to those contained in the introduced budget. Using funds already budgeted and the additional funds contained in this amendment, it is estimated that an additional 160,944 hours of care can be provided in order to address unmet needs for these services. This is a recommendation of the Joint Commission on Health Care.)
