Eligibility:
A family caregiver is an adult family member or another individual (18 years or older) who is an informal (unpaid) provider of in-home and community care to:

  • An older individual (60 years or older)
  • An individual or any age with Alzheimer's Disease or a related neurological disorder

A family caregiver can also be an older relative (55 years or older) who is:

  • The primary caregiver (other than the parent) who lives with and is the informal provider of in-home and community care to a child under the age of 18 because the biological or adoptive parents are unable or unwilling to serve as the primary caregivers of the child.
  • The parent, grandparent, or other relative by blood, marriage, or adoption, of an individual who is 18 years or older with a disability.
  • Lives with the child who is not more than 18 years of age or who is an adult child between 19 and 59 years of age with a disability. In the situation when it is an adult child with a disability, the caregiver cannot be the parent.

Fees are not charged for this program; however, donations are encouraged.

The respite services listed above may be provided for up to a 12 month period or a maximum of $1,500 in services such as those noted above.
