The Licking County
Aging Program (LCAP) offers a Caregiver Respite Grant to the
main caregiver of a senior that resides in Licking County. A nurse from
the Home Services department comes to the home to do an assessment and to get
the necessary paperwork completed, and then faxes the paperwork to a home
services provider, such as Home Instead Senior Care. The grant allows the
caregiver to get a much needed break by using a local agency, such as HISC, to
provide caregiving services for a senior. Contact the Licking County
Aging Program for additional information. 740.345.0821 or
