Caring for individuals with disabilities in Rhode Island.
No one needs to feel alone in caring for an individual with disabilities. Caregiver Homes of Rhode Island’s community-based program helps caregivers to be able to provide high-quality, 24-hour, care at home.
We’ll help make it possible for a family member or friend, to become the primary in-home caregiver by providing them with the support and financial assistance they need. Daily stipend amounts are determined by level of care and the Rhode Island Department of Human Services RIte @ Home regulations. Stipends are non-taxable and non-reportable.
The Caregiver Homes model of Structured Family Caregiving is recognized as RIte @ Home in Rhode Island.
For many individuals with disabilities, the option to be supported at home with familiar surroundings, routines and people is not only the preferred choice, but also one that can provide short and long-term health benefits. And many of our caregivers also find that once they have the training and support they need, caring for a loved one at home is a source of personal pride and satisfaction.
Rhode Island is a state that also provides support in this model of care to elders and their caregivers. Learn more here.
