Since 1994, Interfaith Caregivers of Greater Mercer County has enabled under-served, homebound seniors and adults with disabilities to maintain their independence and dignity. We do this by helping them remain in their own homes through non-medical support services provided free-of-charge.
This includes regular, caring contact by phone and home visits, transportation to medical appointments, picking up groceries and prescriptions, respite for full-time caregivers and even light help around the home.
These services are provided by a dedicated group of volunteers, putting faith into action, who are recruited, trained and managed by Interfaith Caregivers of Greater Mercer County and nearly 30 congregational and community partners. It is a finely woven net of support for the most vulnerable among us.
We are called to service invite you to join us on this sacred journey. While our caregivers offer their time and talent, there are many resources required to sustain this complex network, including 368 caregivers who quietly and humbly go out to serve some 415 care-receivers.
Our professional case managers carefully assess each participant, use this information to make assignments, and monitor over 19,000 hours of service annually. Our caregivers receive initial health and safety training as well as ongoing support and education throughout their service.
Help us sustain compassionate care, senior services, independent living for those with disabilities, and support and training for caregivers in our communities.
