Established under the Older Americans Act, the federally-funded Family Caregiver Support Program provides a system of support services to help informal caregivers - those who are providing unpaid care (help with day-to-day activities) for older adults as well as grandparents who are providing unpaid care for their grandchildren or other young relatives.
The Family Caregiver Support Program is intended to help you if:
Donations are gratefully accepted by Aging and Adult Service Department's providers; however services will not be denied to caregivers if they cannot afford or are unwilling to donate. Family Caregiver Support is a California Department of Aging (CDA) program. What does this mean?
Care Providers Tips and Techniques
Information, Referral and Assistance:
We provide information or refer you to support groups, in-home services, legal and financial services, and other programs that can make your situation easier.
Education, Support, and Training:
We provide individual or group training that can help you take care of your loved one in the home. Bathing, transferring, and medication management are all activities that can be made easier with the right tools and information.
We provide comprehensive caregiver assessments to determine the necessary supportive services or other appropriate services for your loved one and you. We assist you in gaining access to needed services.
It is vital that you have opportunities for breaks from your caregiving responsibilities. We provide short-term relief for you in the home or adult day care center.
Caregiver support groups are an opportunity for you to share information and feel connected to others who are providing care, just like you.
We provide other services to complement the care you are providing.
