How to Be Paid As a Family Caregiver

How can I be paid as a family caregiver?

 To become a paid caregiver for your family member, Arizona offers two programs:

1. Services for Veterans
    1. We suggest you call BeConnected service at 866-429-8387. They help veterans and their families find the resources they need.   
    2. You can also contact the VA Caregiver Support Line (855) 260-3274 to ask about eligibility.   

 

2. Services for All Families

Arizona has the Arizona Long Term Care Services (ALTCS), which is a program through AHCCCS, which is the Medicaid Program in Arizona.

      This is how ALTCS works:  

  • First, your family member will need to be enrolled in Arizona Long Term Care Services (ALTCS). Only if accepted for services, you would then request to be the paid family caregiver.
    • See  and scroll down to see the ALTCS documents regarding how to apply. You can call 888-621-6880, to ask about the application. Keep in mind, your family member must be enrolled in ALTCS, and only then would you request to become the family caregiver.
  • Once you are the designated family caregiver for the ALTCS program, you would then need to connect with a homecare agency contracted with ALTCS. They will train you and pay you, almost as if you were an employee. There is about a day of training, including CPR/First Aid and the Fundamentals of Caregiving training.
  • See   for more details.

Please note: 

If the person needing care has an intellectual or developmental disability, we encourage you to contact the Division of Developmental Disabilities (DDD) at 844-770-9500. If your loved one is eligible for DDD, they will help connect you with ALTCS.
