Our fee-based HomeCare program gives family caregivers a break – and maybe even lets them continue to work outside of the home.
Much has been written about aging Baby Boomers straining resources in the coming decades, including the “sandwich generation” spread thin by caring for teenagers and parents.
But with people living longer lives, more boomers find themselves retired and not traveling the world, but instead caring for mom and dad.
At ElderServe, we empower older adults to live independently with dignity. Sometimes that means supporting families, in addition to direct services for older adults.
Several of our programs play key roles in this effort. For overwhelmed family members, our care managers provide calming, expert guidance and excellent referrals at no cost. Our fee-based HomeCare program gives family caregivers a break – and maybe even lets them continue to work outside of the home.
One of our goals this year is to strengthen our fee-based Adult Day Health Center in west Louisville through strategic communications and marketing. ADHC relieves family members and provides older adults with social and recreational activities under medical supervision. We expect the need for this service to grow as Gen X’ers care for Baby Boomer parents.
The burgeoning population of older adults certainly presents challenges, but at ElderServe, we see opportunities. We could not have made it this far without a strong team of employees, partners, donors and volunteers. Thanks to your help, we know we’re well-positioned to be a life raft for so many in the “silver tsunami.”
