The Respite Program is designed to give unpaid caregivers a temporary break from their caregiver responsibilities. Respite services are available to:

  • Unpaid caregivers who care for loved-ones (60 and older) who are homebound or need daily assistance.
  • Unpaid caregivers for seniors diagnosed with Alzheimer’s or a Dementia related illness.

Supplemental Assistance
Supplemental services reimbursement may be provided for incontinence supplies, nutritional supplements (with physician statement) and some home modification, to complement the assistance provided by caregivers.

Senior Raising Children Program
The purpose of the SRC program is to assist seniors (55 or older) who are responsible for raising a child related through blood, marriage, or adoption by sponsoring the costs of tutoring, afterschool programs, school related expenses, and summer camps for their children.
