Advantages for Caregivers through OFC
For Caregivers: Rest, Support, and Knowledge
Membership with Old Friends Club benefits caregivers, too.
Respite: Remember, it's ok to take time for yourself. When is the last time you had the house to yourself? You are better able to give good care if you make sure your own needs are met. Old Friends Club can give you the freedom to breathe and maintain your own mental and physical health.
Affordability: At less than $14 per hour, Old Friends Club costs far less than other care alternatives. Participation in adult day programs can also prevent or delay the need for more expensive care.
Resources: We will talk through your situation and can refer you to caregiver counseling, legal or financial guidance, help with transitions and other valuable assistance.
Support: You're not alone. We will listen, encourage, brainstorm, and share all the tools we can to help you navigate your unique caregiving journey.
