VA Respite Care

For eligible Veterans, respite care is a program that pays for care for a short time when a Veteran’s caregiver needs or wants a break from caregiving. It is provided on a short-term, pre-planned basis, not to exceed 30 days in a calendar year. The availability of each type of respite may vary due to each agency’s or program’s staffing and other factors.
