Support for family caregivers

Being a family caregiver is demanding and selfless work. We understand that you, too, need support. At Sourcewise, we offer Caregiver Support to fit your social, physical, and mental health needs. We assess you and your loved one’s situation and connect you with realistic options, so you can provide your loved ones with all they need.

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.

In addition to providing you with options, Sourcewise also offers the Family Caregiver Support Program (FCSP) as a way to provide a period of respite services to eligible family caregivers.

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.

Learn about eligibility for this program.
