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.

"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 Sourcewise caregiver support]. 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 [Sourcewise caregiver support], the job of caring for a loved one would have been much harder and challenging."
