The State of Connecticut offers two programs that offer financial support to Caregivers. The Southwestern Ct Agency on Aging administers both programs for 14 towns in Fairfield County. These programs provide the Caregiver a break or “respite” from the challenges of caring for a loved one. A completed application is required before a Care Manager can conduct an in-home assessment to discuss the program and services. Services may vary and can be adjusted as the caregiver or loved one’s needs change.
