Native American Family Caregiver Support Program Requirements

Native American Family Caregiver Support Program can serve two types of unpaid family caregivers:

  1. Family caregivers: An adult family member, or another individual, who is an unpaid informal provider of in-home and community care to an older individual or to an individual with Alzheimer's disease or a related disorder with neurological and organic brain dysfunction.
  2. Grandparents or older individuals who are relative caregivers: A grandparent or step grandparent of a child, or relative of a child by blood marriage, or adoption, who is 55 years of age or older and
    • lives with the child;
    • is the primary caregiver of the child because the biological or adoptive parents are unable or unwilling to serve as the primary caregiver of the child; and
    • has a legal relationship to the child, as such legal custody or guardianship, or is raising the child informally.

The five required services are:

  1. Information to caregivers about available services.
  2. Assistance to caregivers in gaining access to services.
  3. Individual counseling, organization of support groups, and caregivers training to assist the caregivers in the area of health, nutrition, and financial literacy, and in making decisions and solving problems relating to their caregiving roles.

  5. Supplemental services, on a limited basis, to caregivers of frail elders to complement the care provided by caregivers.
