The first program of its kind to respond directly to the needs of adults caring for elders in the community. Its purpose is to reinforce - not replace - the care being provided to the older adult at home. Often times, the caregiver may receive financial reimbursement to help purchase services such as personal and respite care or adult day care and/or to purchase consumable supplies such as incontinence products or OTC (over the counter) products related to caregiving. In addition, eligible caregivers may receive a one-time grant of up to $2,000 to help pay for home adaptations and devices that ease caregiving tasks and increase the financial independence of the older person.
