Whom We Help
 

Although Woodward recognizes that most caregivers have challenges and stresses, Woodward focuses on long-term caregivers who are 65 and older who are caring for a family member or friend, or long-term caregivers of any age caring for a family member or friend who is at least 65.

The caregiver and care recipient must be living in the same home, and the caregiving responsibilities should have been ongoing for at least six months. Applicants must live in one of the following counties in the Denver metropolitan area: Adams, Arapahoe, Boulder, Broomfield, Denver, Elbert, Douglas, and Jefferson.

Examples of Respite Care needs that may be compensated through this fund include:

  • Care for a homebound recipient when the Caregiver desires the opportunity to enhance the quality of his/her life, through classes, social activities, etc.
  • A companion to attend to the homebound recipient, allowing the primary Caregiver to have solitary time and options for at-home activities.
  • A respite Caregiver for night-time duty, allowing the primary Caregiver an uninterrupted night's sleep.
  • Care at an Adult Day Care Center as needed.
  • Respite care on short-term basis in an assisted living facility or nursing home, allowing the Caregiver the opportunity to go out of town for a vacation.
  • Services of a case manager to help the Caregiver learn about and utilize community resources.
