Respite

About Respite

Respite provides short-term care and supervision for the child to provide relief for the parents or caregivers. It may take place in the child’s home, in the community, or in the home of the respite provider (with prior authorization only).

 

Who Receives Respite

Children of all ages can typically receive respite.  Some young adults may also qualify.

 

AZA United's Approach

AZA United strives to provide high quality respite care providers so that families feel comfortable leaving their child in the care of another person.

 

Funding Options

Respite services are authorized by the Arizona Division of Developmental Disabilities (DDD).  The maximum annual approval for respite is typically 600 hours.  To be eligible for funding, families must be approved through Arizona Long Term Care Services (ALTCS).  AZA United is available to assist families at no cost through the process of applying for ALTCS eligibility and requesting habilitation services through DDD.
