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.
Eligibility for this program is extended not only to include care receivers age 60 years or older, but also to include a care receiver of any age with Alzheimer’s disease or a related disorder with neurological dysfunction (related disorders comprise of mild cognitive impairment, traumatic brain injury, vascular and mixed dementia; Parkinson’s and Huntington’s disease), but excludes Stroke.
Do you or someone you know meet the eligibility criteria listed above? Learn about the next steps.
“Things have been going smoothly. Dad is taken care of; he is happy; which makes us happy. It [FCSP of Sourcewise] has helped plant a seed for our future; at least for the rest of my dad’s life.”

"I was going to have surgery and I didn't have money to pay for a caregiver. [Sourcewise] qualified me for respite to pay for a caregiver and connected me with Meals on Wheels so I recuperated with little help for several months. Since I got my own caregiver. This program is wonderful."
- Diana, 79
"...how grateful my family is [for FCSP]. This has allowed us to find help for my 91-year-old father. This program has given us the liberty to hire caregivers that we know and trust. Without [FCSP], the job of caring for a loved one would have been much harder and challenging."
