Second Family

Second Family Caregiver Program at CarePartners Texas

Second Family is a homebased volunteer program focused on helping individuals living with dementia, chronic illness or other challenges of aging. An extended family of trained volunteers offer support and companionship for homebound individuals with volunteers primarily serving members of their own congregation. Care Team volunteers may help with occasional home visits, companionship, and respite care but do not provide skilled care such as nursing, homemaker, attendant, hospice, or personal care services. Pre-registration is required.

This program was funded by a grant provided by the Alzheimer’s Foundation of America.
