Senior Support Services provides services and resources for individuals with Alzeimer’s disease or other dementia, and seniors experiencing frailty or age-related disabilities, and for their caregiver that include:
A Case Manager is a liaison between families, caregivers, individuals and service providers by coordinating services that may include: information and referral, home delivered meals, transportation, home modifications, medical equipment, chore services, respite services and assisted living.
Through the Senior In Home Grant, Chore Services are designed to help seniors live safely and independently in their homes. In-home chore services may include: light house cleaning, meal preparation, laundry, transportation, and grocery shopping. Individuals need to be 60 years of age with an identified need and meet grant priority for services. Individuals cannot live with an able-bodied adult to receive chore services. Services are provided on a sliding fee scale.
Respite Care Services
Through the Senior In Home Grant, Respite care provides primary caregivers valuable time off from caregiving, with the confidence that the individual continues to receive care in a safe environment by a trained professional. Using respite services allows caregivers the opportunity to take a break for themselves and can decrease the stresses families face from caregiving responsibilities. Home-based respite cannot be used for work.
|Information, hours of operation and location:
FRA Support Services for older Alaskans and their caregivers are funded in part by the National Family Caregiver Grant (NFCG) and Senior in Home (SIH) grant through the State of Alaska Department of Senior and Disabilities Services (SDS).
