Celebrating 24-year Anniversary In Business November 2024

At A One Home Care, we understand the unique challenges families face when caring for loved ones with chronic health conditions, disabilities, or age-related needs. Many families strive to keep their loved ones at home, surrounded by familiar comfort and loved ones. This desire is where the Structured Family Caregiving (SFC) program can be a game-changer. This blog will review the SFC program, its goals, and benefits. Keeping families together is the ultimate goal, and SFC can help.

What is SFC?

SFC is a Medicaid-funded program that provides financial and support services to families who choose to be the primary caregivers for their loved ones at home. This program empowers families to avoid institutionalization and maintain a strong family bond while ensuring quality care for their loved ones.

 

What are the goals of SFC?

  • Keeping families together: SFC allows families to care for their loved ones in a familiar and comfortable home environment, fostering stronger family bonds and emotional well-being.
  • Reduce reliance on institutional care: SFC helps families avoid costly nursing home placements by providing financial assistance and support services.
  • Improve quality of care: Caregivers receive training, coaching, and support to provide the best possible care for their loved ones, tailored to their specific needs.
  • Empower caregivers: SFC acknowledges family caregivers’ valuable role and provides them with the resources and support they need to succeed.

 

Who can benefit from SFC?

  • Family members (including spouses, adult children, grandchildren, etc.) of individuals: 
    • Aged 65+ with specific functional limitations
    • Diagnosed with a disability
    • Living with Alzheimer’s disease or related dementia
  • The care recipient: Receives personalized care in a familiar setting, promoting their well-being and independence.
  • The caregiver: Receives financial compensation, training, support, and respite care, reducing stress and burnout.
