Changes are coming to Lifework Aging Solutions. Effective June 30, 2021, the Caregiver Support Program and the no-cost care management program will be coming to an end. Lutheran Family Services Rocky Mountains has had to make tough decisions to shift funding priorities due to the lingering needs of the COVID-19 pandemic.
The Caregiver Support Program has had an amazing run! Over the last 18 years, the program has served countless families through respite care, support groups and resources. LFSRM thanks all the dedicated caregivers and respite providers who give of their time and attention in support of their older adult loved one.
The Care Management program has operated with the belief that quality care management services should be accessible to older adults and their families regardless of their ability to pay. We have had the opportunity to provide consultation, navigation, and solutions to hundreds of older adults and families. We take comfort in the knowledge that there are amazing community service providers that can continue this important work.
Now for the good news, Lifework Aging Solutions continues to grow its guardianship services. In addition to serving as guardian for hospitalized older adults without supports to assist in decision-making, we are engaging with families pursuing guardianship for a hospitalized loved one through our Family Guardianship Support Program. We are eager to see what other opportunities await.
Thank you for your support of our programs over the years.
