When a person cannot properly care for himself, family members or friends are rarely in a position to provide full-time care. Those who do often find themselves suffering from “caregiver stress” and in need of respite—time off to rest and take care of themselves.
At Caring Friends Home Care, our clients think of us as a kind of extended family, ready to help at anytime for however long we are needed. We are not a franchise operation. We are a privately run organization with our own carefully screened, trained and certified caregivers and companions. As a nonprofit organization, the welfare of the individuals and families we serve is our number one priority.
Our Relationship With Intervention Associates
For more than 25 years, Caring Friends Home Care was part of Intervention Associates, one of the oldest and most trusted care management organizations serving the greater Philadelphia area. In 2013, Caring Friends Home Care became a separate entity. As subsidiaries of Friends Life Care Partners, Intervention Associates and Caring Friends Home Care continue to work closely. Intervention Associates identifies, arranges and manages all the care a person needs; Caring Friends Home Care directly provides in-home care.
Although Caring Friends Home Care is a secular company, we are dedicated to the Quaker values of our parent company: integrity, inclusion, compassion and respect for human dignity. In the Quaker tradition, we focus on ability versus disability, and recognize that prolonging and promoting independence is crucial to maintaining quality of life.
