Older Adults & Persons with Disabilities

We partner with older adults, persons living with disabilities, and their caregivers to combat isolation and promote independence

Family Lifeline’s programming for older adults, people with disabilities and their caregivers strives to help individuals reduce social isolation and remain independent, in their own homes for as long as possible. To accomplish this work, we utilize inter-generational programming that works with two generations at a time to ensure wellness, healthy aging and caregiver support. Our intensive home based care-giving, delivered by home care professionals and friendly visiting volunteers, allows individuals and families to remain socially engaged maintaining their health, safety and dignity.
