Family Caregiver Support Program
The Family Caregiver Support Program may be able to provide assistance to you if you are caring for someone who is:
- at least age 60,
- any age and has Alzheimer’s disease or other dementia,
- a child under the age of 18 and you are a non-parent relative 55 years of age or older,
- an adult with a disability and you are a non-parent relative 55 years of age or older.
Services are intended to complement, not replace, the care provided by caregivers.
Services to support the needs of caregivers on a limited basis may include:
- Respite care, including Adult Day Care, to provide a caregiver with a temporary or brief period of relief from the demands of daily care giving
- Information about services and assistance accessing services
- Minor home modifications and/or adaptive aids
- Training for caregivers such as Powerful Tools for Caregivers
The Family Caregiver Support Program acknowledges and encourages the vital role caregivers play in our country’s home and community-based services through support in a coordinated and responsive manner by taking care of those who take care of others. There is no charge for these services.
