Acknowledgement/Agreement
  1. I have reviewed the eligibility on the Lifespan Respite Washington website also available at this link: https://www.lifespanrespitewa.org/voucher-program/ to understand how the Lifespan Respite voucher applies to my situation. I attest that all the information on this application is true and accurate. 
  2. If, during the application process, my care-giving situation changes (e.g., I am no longer providing 40+ hours per week or I receive respite elsewhere), I understand my voucher may be given to another eligible family caregiver. 
  3. I understand I am responsible for selecting a respite provider who will be paid when I indicate I've received the services they are billing to receive their payment. 
  4. I understand that my respite provider may not provide transportation to me/I cannot ride in their vehicle unless the agency as a part of its work provides transportation (e.g. camp, Adult Day Health facility, educational or recreational organization, etc.) and they have provided their insurance certificate to PAVE.
  5. I authorize the exchange of information, including from this application, via common methods (phone, in person, postal mail, fax, email, data entry) among all relevant parties, including formal respite programs to verify, coordinate, and deliver services on behalf of my care receiver and myself.

Indemnification. By selecting the respite provider of his/her own free will, the unpaid, un-served caregiver shall indemnify, defend, and hold harmless PAVE and Lifespan Respite Washington, the State of Washington, the United States Government and the Respite Provider Agency from and against any and all claims, demands, suits, liabilities, and judgments, including attorney’s fees and claims for bodily injury or death, arising from services rendered or for facilities provided with the operation of the LRW Voucher Program.
