At Caregiver Homes, we firmly believe that the caregivers of our nation should never be alone in providing care for their loved ones. This belief originated with the founding of Seniorlink in 2000 by E. Byron Hensley, Jr. Impassioned by his own family caregiving experience, Mr. Hensley wanted to expand the choices available to other families in need of care and support. In 2005, Seniorlink launched Caregiver Homes, an innovative Home and Community Based Services (HCBS) program, which received the National Committee for Quality Assurance’s (NCQA) highest level of Case Management Accreditation. Today we stand alongside thousands of caregivers and their loved ones as they continue on their compassionate journey.
Over the years, we’ve worked closely with caregivers to assure they feel confident and secure in providing care for a loved one at home. If you’re considering making a commitment to care for a family member or loved one, we look forward to doing the same for you.
Our Structured Family Caregiving model is a high-quality alternative to full-time models of care that rely on facilities or in-home workers such as personal care attendants (PCAs). Structured Family Caregiving offers guidance, financial assistance and overall support at every step along the way, helping you feel more confident in providing care for a loved one. Although caregivers are often family members, anyone committed to living with a care recipient, offering support as needed around the clock and providing care like family, may be eligible.
As a caregiver, having a strong, loving relationship with a person you care for offers irreplaceable emotional benefits, and proven health benefits as well. In fact, we hear from caregivers in our program all the time about how being a live-in caregiver and supporting a loved one at home has benefited the entire family.
