Family Caregiver Support Program

The Family Caregiver Support Program is designed to provide assistance to an unpaid caregiver who provides hands-on care for a person 60 years of age and older.  The caregiver and care recipient may reside in the same household or in different homes, but the care recipient must reside in Fayette, Greene, or Washington County. 

Once a referral is made, an assessor will visit the home and complete an assessment of caregiver needs, care recipient needs, and the home environment.

Family Caregivers Support Services

Based on the financial situation of the family household, the caregiver is eligible to receive financial assistance for the following services:

  • Respite Care Services (within and outside the home)
  • Domestic Services
  • Counseling Services
  • Purchase of caregiver supplies not covered by Medicare, Medicaid, or other third party payors
  • Adapting the home to ease the burden and stress of caregiving

In addition, assistance may be available to caregivers 55 years of age and older who reside with a relative adult with disabilities aged 18 to 59 who is not the biological or adopted child of the caregiver and is not receiving Medicaid Waiver services.
