(This amendment provides $1.3 million each year from the general fund to increase the amount of adult day care/respite care delivered by the area agencies on aging. This type of care provides family caregivers with critical relief, and serves as an alternative to nursing home placement. It is estimated that the additional funds contained in this amendment would allow for an additional 279,336 hours of care to be provided in order to address unmet needs for these services.)
