Caregivers’ program at LSH
Are you a caretaker for an older adult? The caretaker’s experience of stress is considered to be one of the most important and highly significant predictors of nursing home entry for the person you are caring for.
If you would prefer to remain caring for your older adult at home, we can help. Lutheran Settlement House Senior Center is looking for caretakers to participate in evening sessions to get connected to local resources, hear lectures from health care professionals and find needed support.
You will receive home visits from a social worker who can assist you in making sure your needs and the needs of the person you are caring for are being met.
Please call Michelle at 215-426-8610, ext. 204 to hear additional information about the Caretaker Group. LSH is located at 1340 Frankford Ave., where Septa buses 5 and 25 stop at the front door. ••
