Thank you for visiting. May is Older American’s Month. 2017 theme is “Age Out Loud.” It is time to use our voices to bring attention to the issues facing us with aging. Older American’s will not be silenced. They bring decades of experiences and we should listen. At Family Caregivers Network we advocate for the rights of seniors. After 30 years of working as a visiting nurse caring for adults and Southeastern PA, I noticed it was access to information and resources for Long Term Care services that was an issue for most families of aging loved ones. I found caring for my own mother and trying to navigate Long Term Care services available to her was very confusing. The systems for accessing Long Term Care constantly changes.
I believe we offer families more than the traditional In-Home care. My agency is based on the C.A.R.E.S. platform; Community Advocacy, Resource, Education, and Support. I believe it is through these four service lines that we are able to meet the entire needs of family caregivers and their aging loved ones.
Located in Pennsburg, PA in the Upper Perkiomen Valley we offer In-Home care services to seniors in Montgomery, Bucks, Berks, Lehigh, Northampton, and Chester Counties. All staff are trained in house by a nurse supervised training program. Additional training is given to our home care aides who specialize in Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s care. All staff are bonded & insured.
With the help of Family Caregivers In-Home Care we keep families together and decrease the stress of caring for an aging parent or love one. As you visit the pages on our website watch our education videos on our Educational Outreach page to learn about services and products that help with the care and safety of seniors at home. In Celebration of Older American’s Month please watch our video below.
Caregiving is very stressful and can affect your health. It is important to get the proper rest so you can refuel to care for your loved one.
