Long-Term Support Services
We know that caregiving is exhausting without some support. Family Lifeline’s Living Well programming for older adults, persons with disabilities, and their caregivers strives to help individuals remain living well in community settings of their choosing where they feel safe, connected, healthy, and engaged.
Our comprehensive Long Term Support Services are person-centered, trauma informed, and individualized to each client’s needs. They're also focused on working with two generations at a time to ensure overall wellness, healthy aging, and caregiver support.
Research shows that social isolation, frailty, and chronic health conditions increase sharply with age. As the population ages, more and more individuals will find it difficult to carry out the everyday tasks necessary to age-in-place and remain safely at home. Our goal is to support individuals and families to remain socially engaged while maintaining their health, safety, and dignity.
Home Care Services
Home Care Services support our loved ones by assisting with activities of daily living, such as cooking, housekeeping, and errands. Our multidisciplinary team of administrators, CNAs, PCAs, and our registered nurse work together to provide person-centered, trauma-informed care, customized to each client's needs, so that individuals can remain living in housing of their choosing for as long as possible.
Family Lifeline also offers respite care to relieve caregiver stress.
Our Visiting Volunteers program matches older adults and persons with disabilities with volunteers who provide companionship, outreach, and support.
Volunteers commit to visiting their individual match a minimum of once a week for a year. Volunteers receive formal training focusing on person centered engagement and sensitivity to the needs of individuals facing difficult life circumstances (e.g., health issues, grief, etc.). These vital supports increase the opportunity for older adults to remain in housing of their choosing for as long as possible by reducing loneliness and isolation.
Program Goals for our Living Well Programs are:
Promoting health and wellness in the comfort and safety of home
Preventing premature placement in long-term care facilities
Facilitating social connectedness and community engagement
Relieving the stress and role-strain associated with caregiving
Improving life course outcomes -- two generations at a time
