Caregiver Incentive Project launches to support disabled individuals

MARQUETTE — The Caregiver Incentive Project (CIP), is a nonprofit organization with the mission to end the national shortage of qualified in-home caregivers.

This organization was founded by Eric Paad who was inspired by Dorothy Paad, his daughter, for whom he and his wife have been in-home caregivers since 2007.

The CIP aims to educate the public regarding the crisis, as well as, provide financial incentives in the way of scholarships and stipends, and provide training for new caregivers.

The group is working with NMU and Invent at NMU to get the project rolling throughout the community.

With good quality care it can definitely be a positive change for someone who is in need of help on a daily basis.

CIP is working closely with established agencies that serve disabled individuals, the elderly, medically fragile individuals, and others requiring in-home care.
