Respite for family caregivers

Being a family caregiver is demanding and selfless work. We understand that you, too, need support. At Sourcewise, we offer the Family Caregiver Support Program (FCSP) as a way to provide a period of respite services to family caregivers.

A family caregiver is someone who:

  • cares for a family member or another individual (i.e friend or neighbor).
  • is an informal (unpaid) provider of in-home or community care to a care receiver.  
  • is age 18 years or older.

What does the Family Caregiver Support Program provide? 

  • Information to caregivers about available services;
  • Assistance to caregivers in gaining access to supportive services;
  • Individual counseling, organization of support groups, and caregivers to assist the caregivers in making decisions and solving problems relating to their caregiver roles;
  • Respite care to enable caregivers to be temporarily relieved from their caregiving responsibilities;
  • Supplemental services, on a limited basis, to complement the care provided by caregivers.
