Family Caregiver Support Grandparenting Program

Many older adults find themselves serving as parents for the young children in their extended families, raising the children within their own homes. FCSP also offers support for grandparents, aunts, uncles, and cousins, ages 55 years and older, caring for children under the age of 18 years. FCSP has a special program that offers intergenerational caregivers monthly reimbursement for caregiving supplies and services.
