When a person cannot properly care for himself or herself, 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 an extension to their own family, helping with needed caregiving in a personal and dependable way. We are not a franchise operation. We are a privately held 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.
What Quaker Values Mean for Caring Friends Home Care
Caring Friends Home Care is dedicated to the Quaker values of integrity, inclusion, compassion and respect for human dignity. The Society of Friends, commonly known as Quakers, has a rich tradition of service. In the greater Philadelphia region, the Friends were among the first to develop dedicated support services for the aging. In the Quaker tradition, we focus on ability versus disability, and recognize that prolonging and promoting independence is crucial to maintaining quality of life. We are dedicated to serving older adults as well as people of all ages with all types of conditions.
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; however, we continue to offer care management services. As both Caring Friends Home Care and Intervention Associates are subsidiaries of Friends Life Care Partners, the groups continue to work closely together. Our personalized, dependable services can help you or a loved one with short- or long-term home care, concierge services or care management.
