(This amendment provides funding for the Respite Care Initiative grant which enables a caregiver of an individual with dementia to have a temporary rest from the caregiver role. At present, there are 264 families on the waiting list for services. The requested funding would allow approximately 80 additional families to benefit from the Respite Care Initiative. This is a recommendation of the Joint Commission on Health Care.)
