The Caregiver Support Program
The Caregiver Support Program supports non-paid caregivers of adults age 60 and older
who have a demonstrated need for home care assistance. The program can assist with a variety of services,
including in-home respite, adult day care, caregiver counseling, institutional respite in a licensed facility,
and durable medical equipment.
The free program services are available once a calendar year on a short-term basis.
A voluntary contribution may be suggested for the services provided.
Program participants will not be denied service due to inability to contribute to the program.
To enroll, caregivers must call Senior Options
to complete a confidential assessment to identify service need, determine eligibility and to coordinate services.
The National Family Caregiver Support Program is funded by the Older American’s Act through the Ohio Department of Aging.
The Franklin County Office on Aging receives a grant contract from this funding through the Central Ohio Area Agency on Aging to support the Caregiver Support Program.
