NFCSP sitter service:
One of the components of the National Family Caregiver Support Program (NFCSP), is the in-home sitter services or in-home respite care section.
Through the NFCSP respite program, caregivers of older relatives are able to request in-home sitter services for a senior who is not able to travel to adult day care
The NFCSP individual sitter service/respite program program is not available in all areas. It depends on what your local Area Agency on Aging requests and designates the Federal Government’s Administration on Aging funds for.
