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. 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 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 immediately.
