State of Florida – Department of Elder Affairs
Helpful website (see below): https://elderaffairs.org/
The Florida Department of Elder Affairs provides most direct services through its Division of Statewide Community-Based Services, which works through the state’s 11 Area Agencies on Aging and local service providers to deliver essential services to a vital segment of the population.
The major focus of DOEA is to provide home and community-based services to seniors who are at risk of being placed into a long-term care facility because of their degree of frailty. Ultimately, the goal is to efficiently use resources to ensure that the greatest number of elders possible get to choose where they live while living healthy, active, and fulfilling lives in their communities.
The ADI provides caregiver RESPITE services and support. ADI respite includes in-home, facility-based (usually at adult day care centers), emergency, and extended care (up to 30 days) for caregivers who serve patients with memory disorders. To find an Alzheimer’s Respite Provider, call the Elder Helpline at 1-800-963-5337.
