  • A person with Alzheimer’s disease or other dementia regardless of age, and
  • Grandparents or relative caregivers 55 years of age and older who are caring for grandchildren under age 18, or who are caring for someone with a severe disability who is 19 to 59 years of age.

  • Assistance identifying and accessing available resources.
  • Caregiver newsletter.

  • Medication management assistance, with use of an automated pill dispenser.
  • Home delivered meals.
  • Grab bar and ramp installation.
  • Respite care to enable caregivers to be temporarily relieved from their caregiving responsibilities, whether their loved one is elderly or a grandchild, including: •Personal care and bathing assistance
  • Homemaker services
  • Bill management assistance
  • General in-home care
  • Adult Day Center care
  • Overnight facility care
  • Free, open Resource Library with books and media for caregivers to checkout
