The Arizona Respite Locator – Connecting those who need respite with those who provide care. This statewide directory makes it easier for families to find care assistance that best matches their needs.

  • Helps families connect with skilled workers and agencies that can provide care for a loved one so caregivers can take much needed respite from caregiving duties.
  • Helps skilled respite workers find jobs with families who need their assistance.

Benefits Check up
Many older people and adults with disabilities need help paying for prescription drugs, healthcare, utilities, and other basic needs. However, millions of Americans – especially those with limited incomes – are eligible for, but not receiving benefits from, existing state,federal, and local programs.

Benefits CheckUp is the nation’s most comprehensive web-based service to screen for benefits programs for people with limited income and resources who are 55 and older, or are an adult of any age and disabled.

Benefits CheckUp will also screen you for potential eligibility in special drug programs offered by pharmaceutical companies.

Begin your free and confidential screening! (A screening will typically take about 20 minutes.)
