National Family Caregiver Support Program
The National Family Caregiver Support Program provides information and assistance to family members, neighbors and friends that are providing care for adults who are 60 years or older or to a person of any age who has Alzheimer’s or a related dementia. Grandparents and older relatives providing care for minor children or an adult with a disability may also qualify for the program. Funding can be used for a variety of services that will benefit the caregiver such as respite care, chore services, personal care, adaptive aids or safety equipment.
Alzheimer’s Family and Caregiver Support Program
The Alzheimer’s Family and Caregiver Support Program was created to enhance the lives of informal and family caregivers while helping people with dementia remain living in the community as long as possible. Funds are available to qualified people to provide temporary caregiver respite care and purchase goods and services needed to help care for someone with irreversible dementia.
