Description of Service
The Caregiver Support Program (CSP) provides primary caregivers with a break from caregiving (respite care), reimbursement for out of pocket costs associated with caregiving related services and supplies, education, training, counseling and more.
The program supports individuals who want to live at home but need help with daily activities such as meal preparation, bathing, dressing, grooming, eating, and/or personal care. It is designed to ease the burden for caregivers who are overwhelmed with helping their loved one, managing their own family, and possibly work responsibilities as well.
*Adults of any age caring for someone who is 60 years of age and older or someone of any age with early onset Alzheimers,
*Grandparents (age 55+) taking care of grandchildren when parents are unavailable,
*Family member (age 55+) taking care of a family member (age 18-59) with a disability,
The reimbursement portion of CSP has income eligibility requirements; however, all program participants will receive an assessment of their needs, a dedicated care manager to connect them with services, financial and resource counseling, access to caregiver training, support groups, and respite.
