Pennsylvania Department of Aging - Family Caregiver Support Program
Family Caregiver takes a cost-sharing approach; income-eligible families may receive up to $200 per month to help with out-of-pocket expenses ranging from respite care to adult briefs.

In addition, one-time grants of up to $2,000 may be given to qualified families to modify the home or purchase assistive devices to accommodate the frail relative. Such adaptations might include installing a stair climb or modifying a bathroom.
