Respite services in New Jersey's Community Care Program for the Elderly and Disabled (Report #2) (2002)
This report presents the findings of a study of respite services offered by New Jersey's Community Care Program for the Elderly and Disabled (it accompanies an earlier report on New Jersey's Statewide Respite Care Program). The study employed two data sources: interviews with program staff and the program's computerized administrative data for respite users from 1993 to 1999. The report describes the design and implementation of the program, with particular attention to the respite service, important program changes, perceived strengths and weaknesses of the program, the client profile and the service use patterns. It also explains the conceptual difference and the relationship between this program and the Statewide Respite Care Program.
