Family Caregivers

Compensation For Caregiving

Overview

Family caregivers provide unpaid care to their loved ones, and Colorado has some unique opportunities to be paid for some of their time spent caregiving. Eligibility varies across programs.

Getting Compensated

Many family caregivers providing unpaid care for their relative or loved one with special needs may have the opportunity to be reimbursed or paid for some of their time spent caregiving. Such opportunities may benefit the primary caregiver and family unit. Family caregivers are sometimes unable to work, or must work reduced hours, because of the care their loved one requires.

Being compensated for caregiving allows family caregivers to support themselves and their family. Eligibility and care type supported by each program differs. Family caregivers and the individual receiving care should carefully consider their options and discuss in depth with their support network and care manager if possible.
