The Bucks County Area Agency on Aging is pleased to offer the Caregiver Support Program. The program is a combination of care management support, educational/support sessions and financial reimbursement for both caregivers aged 60 and older caring for loved ones; as well as grandparent/relative caregivers, aged 55 and older, providing care and support to grandchildren aged 18 and younger. The Caregiver and Care Recipient may be related or not, and they may live in the same home or not.
Oftentimes, informal caregivers find themselves caring for loved ones without the proper tools or resources to do so. This program may help ease your burden while you are doing the important job of caring for someone. If after calling us for an initial consultation, eligibility seems likely, an aging care manager will schedule a fuller assessment to determine both your and your loved ones needs, create a care plan and explain the program and process in more detail.
To reach the Caregiver Support Program, call us at 267-880-5700.
