Family Caregiver Program

Family Caregiver program

The Family Caregiver Support Program works to ensure that family caregivers and older adults raising relative’s children (grandparents) have the support and assistance they need to continue caring for their care receivers. The program is designed to help reduce the stress of caregivers and grandparents allowing them to continue to provide quality of care in the home.

Giving Caregivers Choices

The Family Caregiver Support Program is flexible. We believe that caregivers know what they need. The program allows you to choose the help you want.

We also know that caring for a dependent person can be overwhelming. If you want us to help you make choices, we can do that too. You are in charge. There is a limit on financial assistance one can receive in a year; however if you qualify for financial assistance, you decide when and how to use it with very few guidelines.
