LIFE is for Elders
Staying independent and remaining at home is important for our community’s elderly. Safety and proper care are serious concerns, though. LIFE St. Francis understands this and helps seniors to stay healthy and living at home. Seniors in the LIFE program benefit from a wide range of healthcare services provided in our LIFE Center or at home, 365 days a year.
LIFE is for Caregivers
If you’re like millions of other family caregivers, you want the best care for your aging loved one. But getting that care can be frustrating. You know what it’s like to drive your loved one to different appointments. You know managing medications and coordinating care between doctors can be challenging. And you struggle with leaving your loved one at home alone during the day.
It doesn’t have to be this way. Thousands of families across America have found a different and better kind of care for their aging loved ones through PACE programs like LIFE St. Francis. These families have found LIFE can coordinate all the care and services your loved one needs so you don’t have to place them in a nursing home. LIFE St. Francis is a service of St. Francis Medical Center, one of Central New Jersey’s most respected healthcare providers since 1874.
