The Family Caregiver Support Program offers No-Cost services to unpaid family caregivers providing care to an older individual (age 60 and older), or an individual of any age with Alzheimer's Disease.
This program is designed to help family caregivers in many roles. If you are an adult child caring for a senior parent, a senior caring for a senior spouse, or any adult with Alzheimer's Disease or Parkinson's related diseases, you may qualify for this extra assistance. With our services, we can fill in the gaps that are not covered by other programs. By helping with the day to day responsibilities, we give the caregiver time to focus more on the emotional care of their loved ones. Caregivers can be a son, daughter, spouse, brother, sister, or unrelated to the person whom the care is being provided.
