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 that include in-home respite,
adult day services, caregiver counseling, durable medical equipment and institutional respite in a licensed facility.
The free program services are available once a calendar year on a short-term basis.
A voluntary donation is suggested for the services provided.
Caregivers will not be denied assistance 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 administer the Caregiver Support Program.
