Family Caregiver:
The Family Caregiver Support Program was established by Congress in 2000 to offer support to family members and informal caregivers by providing up to one, six-hour day per week of respite care to unpaid caregivers caring for a family member or friend over the age of 60.  Services for this program are provided on a donation basis.  Seniors will not be denied service because of their inability to pay.

Ask Yourself
Do I provide care for a family member or friend over the age of 60?
As an unpaid caregiver, do I sometimes feel that I need a break from the care that I provide?
Do I need training on how to take care of myself so I can continue to take care of my loved one?
Am I sometimes at a loss in knowing the resources available to me or my loved one?
Would it be beneficial to meet others who are also providing care for a loved one?

If the answer to any of these questions is yes, we may be able to help you.
