The Administration for Community Living (ACL) released the Outcome Evaluation of the National Family Caregiver Support Program (NFCSP) on December 6, 2018.
Key Respite Findings
One key finding regarding respite was that, on average, NFCSP caregivers who received 4 or more hours of respite care per week had a decrease in self-reported burden over time, while the comparison caregivers experienced an increase in self-reported burden.
In addition, among caregivers who used NFCSP respite care, as the respite hours per week increased, so did the probability of a more favorable response regarding caregivers’ perception that services helped them continue caregiving.
