Synopsis As Introduced
Creates the Family Caregiver Act, to be administered by the Department on Aging, for the purpose of encouraging family members to provide care for their elderly family members. Requires the Department to contract with area agencies on aging and other appropriate agencies to provide family caregiver support services to the extent of available funding. Provides that the services include counseling, training, and respite care. Requires the Department to seek federal funding for a demonstration project. Also authorizes caregiver support services for grandparents who are primary caregivers for their grandchildren. Amends the Respite Program Act. Deletes references to abused adults and to functionally disabled or cognitively impaired adults (so that the Act applies to "frail or disabled" adults). Defines a "frail or disabled adult" as a person who is age 60 (instead of 55) or older and who either (i) suffers from Alzheimer's disease or a related disorder or (ii) is unable to attend to his or her daily needs without assistance or regular supervision. Deletes references to the Council on Aging. Makes other changes. Effective July 1, 2004.

House Committee Amendment No. 1
Provides that emergency respite care may be provided on one or more occasions unless an extension is deemed necessary by an agency designated by the Department and area agencies on aging to conduct needs assessments for respite care services (as an alternative to the case coordination unit).
