Version V1

This study surveyed state government agencies in the United States to determine the nature and extent of adult respite care delivered by these agencies or supported under their auspices. Officials of state agencies were queried on the types of respite care services offered, components of care, eligibility and service limitations, total number of people served, number of people with Alzheimer's disease served, how their programs were created, the cost of respite care to the state, and the funding mechanisms used to support respite care. The data include the name of each surveyed state agency, the name of its respite care program, and contact information for the agency.
