At Alegna ALS, we believe that a family member is still the best caregiver to patients who are sick and disabled, and the home is still the best place to be. Fortunately, the option is now available to become a caregiver for a family member and to receive compensation for doing so. This is through the Structured Family Caregiving Program, which offers benefits and support to loved ones willing to care for their sick family members.

With Structured Family Caregiving, a caregiver can take advantage of support such as:

  • Access to a professional health coach who will help you learn more about your loved one’s condition and understand his treatment program.
  • Access to different resources and tips that will help you with your role as a paid family caregiver.
  • A tax-free financial stipend to help you with your own needs

Alegna ALS is committed to helping every structured family caregiver equip themselves with the right knowledge and skills to be the best caregiver to their loved ones in the comforts of their own home.

What are the eligibility criteria for the Structured Family Caregiver Program?

  • The client (the disabled) must meet Georgia Medicaid financial and medical criteria, as set forth, under the Community Care Services Program (CCSP) or SOURCE Program.

  • The caregiver cannot be a person legally responsible for the client.
