LIFE Is for Seniors
Staying independent and being able to continue living at home are important
objectives for seniors; however, ensuring their safety and proper care
are serious concerns. Saint Francis LIFE understands this and offers a
total solution to help seniors stay healthy and live safely at home. Seniors
in the LIFE program benefit from a wide range of healthcare services provided
in our LIFE Center or in their homes, as needed, 365 days a year.
LIFE Is for Caregivers
Family caregivers want the best care for their loved one. Getting that
care, however, can be frustrating. Driving to multiple doctor appointments,
staying informed about medical issues, helping to keep track of medications,
and coordinating care can be challenging for any caregiver. And leaving
a loved one at home alone during the day can be worrisome. It doesn’t
have to be this way. Saint Francis LIFE can coordinate all the care and
services needed to relieve caregiver stress.
LIFE Is Good
Saint Francis LIFE offers many advantages for seniors, including:
- Seniors stay in control of their lives, remaining in the community and
out of a nursing home as long as possible.
- A team approach to care that keeps the senior and the family at the center
of healthcare decisions.
- Care is complete, preventative and ongoing.
- Help and relief for caregivers and family members.
