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.

Contact your local Senior Center for more information.
