What is the Caregiver Support Program?
The Caregiver Support Program serves as part of the regional aging services network supported by the Health and Human Services Commission. The Caregiver Support Program provides services for the informal caregiver, and family or friends who care for loved ones who are ill or have disabilities and live at home.
A Caregiver Case Manager:
- provides information about available services.
- helps in accessing supportive services.
- helps arrange respite care to give stressed caregivers a break from their responsibilities.
Who can receive Caregiver Support Services?
Caregiver Support Services are available to individuals who reside in Bowie, Cass, Delta, Franklin, Hopkins, Lamar, Morris, Red River or Titus Counties. Either the caregiver or the recipient of the care must be 60 years of age or older and the recipient must live at home. There is no charge for services provided through the Caregiver Support Program; however, a donation can be made to the Area Agency on Aging Caregiver fund if an individual wishes to do so.
Funded in part by the Health and Human Services Commission.
