Family Caregiver Support

As part of the National Family Caregiver Support Program, under the Older Americans Act, the Riverside County Office on Aging provides support to family caregivers who are caring for or helping an older relative and can assist in coordinating services to help family members maintain their caregiving roles. The National Family Caregiver Support Program identifies gaps in services and provides Riverside County Office on Aging with a foundation to develop programs, in collaboration with other agencies, to help family caregivers cope with the many demands of caring for relatives. There are no income requirements to participate in the program.
