Of special interest to aging residents who need help to continue
living at home, the budget allocates $25 million in increased
funding for caregiver respite services and assistance in finding
caregiving support, along with more funding for Alzheimer’s
Disease Assistance Centers and the Alzheimer’s Disease
Community Assistance Program.
The state AARP praised Cuomo’s backing of the Caregiver
Support Initiative to provide training and other assistance for
informal caregivers who will be responsible for patients who are
being discharged from health care facilities. About three million
people in New York are either full- or part-time informal
caregivers for a family member or loved one.
