Who we serve

The Family Caregiver Support Program helps unpaid family and friends in caring for an older adult at home. You may not see yourself as a caregiver. Do you provide direct help with dressing, bathing or walking? Or do you provide supportive care with delivery or ordering groceries, paying bills or calling to check on someone? Then you are a caregiver, and we are here to support you! Grandparents and other non-parent relatives who are the primary caregiver for children can find support through our Relatives as Parents Program.

More specifics on who is eligible:

  • An unpaid family or friend caring for someone:
    • Over the age of 60, or
    • Any age with a dementia diagnosis
    • Not currently connected to other care supports such as Medicaid long-term services supports
