The purpose of the Lifespan Emergency Respite program is to offer funding and resources to support caregivers of children or adults with special needs or a chronic/terminal illness who have an urgent need for respite care in the absence of any other funding source. The Alabama Lifespan Emergency Respite program supports the caregiver’s decision to request emergency respite care and determine where the care will be delivered and by whom.
