General Information
Description of ServiceThe Caregiver Support Program (CSP) provides primary caregivers with a break from caregiving (respite care), reimbursement for out of pocket costs associated with caregiving related services and supplies, education, training, counseling and more.

The program supports individuals who want to live at home but need help with daily activities such as meal preparation, bathing, dressing, grooming, eating, and/or personal care. It is designed to ease the burden for caregivers who are overwhelmed with helping their loved one, managing their own family, and possibly work responsibilities as well.
