Celebrating 24-year Anniversary In Business November 2024

As a caregiver, you know how important it is to keep your loved one at home for as long as possible. Home is where they feel most comfortable and secure, and it’s where they can receive the best possible care. But sometimes, it can be challenging to provide the level of care your loved one needs while also working, managing your own household, and taking care of yourself. That’s where the Structured Family Caregiving (SFC) program can help. In this blog, we’ll review how to become a paid caregiver for a family member with the Structured Family Caregiving (SFC) program. 

 

What is the SFC Program?

The SFC program with Health Force of Georgia offers financial and support services to Georgia families that deliver care at home for a senior or disabled person. If your family member is elderly or has a disability and needs help with daily tasks, like getting dressed or eating, the SFC program can assist. 

Who is Eligible?

To be eligible for the SFC program, you must:

  • Be a family member of the person you are caring for. Family members include spouses, parents, children, siblings, grandparents, and grandchildren.
  • Be able to provide at least 16 hours of care per week.
  • Not be employed outside the home.
  • Not have any criminal convictions preventing you from working with children or vulnerable adults.

The Caregiving Services

The caregiving services that can be provided under the SFC program include:

  • Assistance with activities of daily living (ADLs), such as bathing, dressing, and toileting
  • Assistance with instrumental activities of daily living (IADLs), such as cooking, cleaning, and managing finances
  • Supervision and companionship
  • Respite care

Benefits of Keeping Your Love One at Home

Here are some of the benefits of keeping your loved one at home:

  • Improved quality of life: Studies have shown that people who can stay at home have a higher quality of life than those who are institutionalized.
  • Reduced costs: Home care is often less expensive than institutional care.
  • Greater independence: Staying at home allows people to maintain their independence and dignity.
