Preferred care Info

The caregiving role often evolves over time. The caregiver takes on more and more responsibilities, not realizing how involved he or she has become. For others, caregiving comes in a time of crisis, unplanned and unexpected. A sudden illness can turn an independent older person into someone who needs assistance on a daily basis.

Hellenic Foundation’s Community Care Program provides services to any person who applies for the program and meets all current eligibility requirements. It also allows for a family-member or friend caregiver to receive training and compensation to care for their loved one.
