For Older And Vulnerable Adults

Independence with dignity…that’s what Catholic Family Center’s (CFC) services for older and vulnerable adults are all about. With the right supports, older adult clients are able to stay in their own homes and out of costly nursing home care; vulnerable adults are protected by legal guardianship services and/or budget & bill paying oversight.

With CFC, you, your family, your caregivers…will all have the peace of mind that comes from knowing high quality support services are delivered by dedicated staff.
