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.
Long Term Support Service options include:
Three types of home care services, Nursing Support and Consultation, Visiting Volunteers, Care Coordination or a combination of these services. At each connection point, Family Lifeline offers Honoring Choices (a major initiative to build systemic change, advocacy and education around advanced care planning) and counseling. We also participate in No Wrong Door (a virtual system and statewide network of shared resources designed to streamline access to long term services and supports – connecting individuals, providers and communities across Virginia) as a means to connect our families with the services they need.
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
