Family Caregiver Support Services

There are a variety of services available in most communities to help older people and people with disabilities live independently in their own homes and communities. Contact your local caregiver support program to learn more about or get assistance with these services:

 

Home Delivered Meals: Better known as “Meals on Wheels,” these nutritious meals are delivered to older people in their homes.

Transportation: Rides are available for people who are older or disabled who don’t have private transportation, and who cannot use public transportation to meet their needs.

 

Emergency Response Systems: These services provide an in-home, 24-hour electronic alarm system enabling an individual to call for help if they have an emergency.
