Family Caregiver Grant

 

Another program of the agency, the Family Caregiver Grant Program, offers short-term help and respite for caregivers. These grants are distributed yearly and help caregivers pay for respite care. The only requirement is that the person receiving the care is at least 60 years of age. If the person has Alzheimer's disease or another type of dementia there is no age qualification.

 

It is important that family caregivers receive some relief from the responsibilities of being a primary caregiver. Fatigue and depression can occur if they are not allowed a break from their responsibilities, so we assist with this family problem, helping the caregiver and person receiving the care. There are no income restrictions on applicants for these grants. It’s one of many resources available at AAA for family members caring for their loved ones at home.
