Caregiver Resources and Services
Families are the foundation of care for older adults in the United States. The Family Caregiver Support Program is designed to support family members who are caring for adults 60 years of age or older. The support services offered to caregivers are:
- Information about resources
- Education, training and support groups
- Short-term in-home support services
- Assistance in accessing services.
Caregiver Support Coordination
Support Coordination is an ongoing process to assess the needs of a caregiver and care recipient to effectively plan, manage, coordinate, and follow-up on services which most appropriately meet the identified needs as mutually defined by the caregiver, the care recipient, and the access and assistance staff.
