Caregiver Support Program

What Is the Caregiver Support Program?

Weber Human Services Caregiver Support Program is to provide information and in-home support for family caregivers of individuals living in Weber-Morgan with health, mobility, neurological or functional limitations. The program is designed to reduce the burdens of caregiving in hopes of enabling our caregiver clients to care for their loved ones as long as possible and delay facility placement. There is no income or asset test to qualify for the program.
