Family Caregivers are defined as adult family members or another individual who is an informal (unpaid) provider of in-home and community care to an older individual (60 and over) or any individual with Alzheimer’s Disease or a related neurological disorder.
Family Caregivers are also Grandparents or step-grandparents of a child or a relative of a child by blood, marriage, or adoption, who is 55 years of age or older and:
- Lives with the child who is not more than 18 years of age or who is an adult child between 19 and 59 years of age with a disability. In the situation when it is an adult child with a disability, the caregiver cannot be the parent.
- 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 minor child.
- Has a legal relationship to the child, such as legal custody or guardianship, or is raising the child informally.
