Family Caregiver Support Program

Area Agency on Aging

The Family Caregiver Support Program is designed to provide assistance, support, and services – such as respite or supplemental services – to caregivers. Caregivers need support in the everyday activities that surround the long-term care of their loved one. This way, caregivers can retain greater control over their personal life and health. The focus is to empower the caregiver with training, education, information, support groups, and temporary relief from care giving responsibilities.

To qualify for this program, the caregiver must be 18 years of age or older providing for a care recipient over the age of 60. Caregivers may be any of the following: spouse, parent, sibling, grandparent, any relative, or anyone providing care for a loved one.
