  192.2105.  Respite care program for Alzheimer's purposes. — 1.  To encourage development of appropriate services for persons having Alzheimer's disease and related disorders, the department may make grants to public and private entities for pilot projects from funds specifically appropriated for this purpose.  Pilot projects shall have the following goals:

  (1)  To prevent or postpone institutionalization of persons having Alzheimer's disease and related disorders who currently live in their own home or in a family home;

  (2)  To offer services that emphasize safety, surveillance and behavior management rather than, or in addition to, medical treatment, homemaker, chore or personal care services;

  (3)  To temporarily relieve family members or others who have assumed direct care responsibilities by offering services that allow care givers to leave the home.  These services shall include but not be limited to adult day care, in-home companions and respite care;

  (4)  To test the practical and economic feasibility of providing services in settings and at levels designed for varying needs; and

  (5)  To develop program models that can be adapted and operated by other public and private entities.

  2.  The director, in accordance with chapter 536, shall promulgate rules that establish procedures for grant application, review, selection, monitoring and auditing of grants made pursuant to sections 192.2100 to 192.2110.

  3.  The grants shall be limited to a duration of one year but may be renewable for one additional year at the director's discretion and if funds are appropriated for this purpose.
