Family Caregiver Assistance
Are you providing care for an elderly relative? Are you sandwiched between the needs of your parent and your children?
Then you know how stressful it can be. The demands on your time, energy, health, and finances may be significantly increased. Often, this puts a strain on your other relationships—marriage, family, career.
Fortunately, there are senior caregiving options that can help lighten your load and make it easier for you to provide the best possible care for your loved ones.
The Family Caregiver Support Program (FCSP) addresses the unique needs of family members who provide care to an elderly relative. Services are also available to other unpaid caregivers of individuals age 60 and over. Available services include:
- Providing information to caregivers about available services, and connecting caregivers to those services
- Arranging for respite care, so that you can have time to yourself, to attend to other responsibilities, or just to rejuvenate and recharge
- Providing training to caregivers and other family members who are responsible for frail, older adults
