The National Family Caregiver Support Program (NFCSP) funds a variety of acknowledged methods that help family and informal caregivers care for loved ones at home for as long as possible. The NEK Council on Aging has been a participant in this vital outreach since shortly after Congress passed legislation for its funding in 2000.
As a Care Option, our Family Caregiver Support Program assists two main groups:
- grandparents and relatives who are raising a family member’s child when the parents are unable
- a wife, husband, adult child, or even a friend, who is helping a frail adult or one who may have dementia to remain as independent as possible.
