National Family Caregiver Support Program

The National Family Caregiver Support Program (NFCSP) provides support services to informal family caregivers of individuals 60 years of age and older. The Caregiver can receive support in the form of care management, respite, education and training, information and assistance and various supplemental services. A service can be approved if it allows the caregiver to successfully maintain their caregiving role. Another aspect of the NFCSP is support for grandparents or relative caregivers who are the primary caregiver for a grand child who is eighteen years of age or younger. Check with the local Area Agency on Aging for the caregiver support services available.
