    Some of our AAAs in South Carolina do participate in cost sharing. They have suggested rates/percentages for participants, but take any voluntary contribution. Those funds are then utilized to offset the amount allocated to the caregiver, thereby freeing up funds to be provided to another caregiver. All cost sharing is tied to the program which generated the contribution.

    If you have additional questions I’d be happy to try to answer.

    From Kathy McKeon with the Catholic Diocese of Providence, RI, and a partner in the RI Lifespan Respite grant. If you have helpful information to share, please respond directly or post your response for everyone here on the Discussion Forum.  You will need to log in to do so.

    Question:  Does your state or any of the Area Agencies on Aging which administer the National Family Caregiver Support Program (NFCSP) in your state employ a cost share for respite services funded specifically with these program funds?  If so, please describe briefly.
