Family First in The Community
Family First Home Companions provides more than just home care services. We offer a variety of programs and services to provide education, to give back, and to build relationships in our communities.
Seasons of Love
Seasons of Love is an uplifting and inspirational program that brings children and older adults together each season to engage in a pen pal campaign. This entails having children from local schools write letters, poems, or draw pictures for the adults living in either nursing homes or assisted living communities who may be having a hard time
transitioning into this vulnerable stage of their lives.
90% of older adults residing in these types of homes report feeling lonely, isolated, and even depressed. At the end of the program, a celebration of the season takes place at the senior community bringing the children and older adults together. To learn more about Seasons of Love, please contact us at 631-319-3961.
Family First Home Companions offers recreational activities for older adults in senior centers and nursing homes free of charge. We offer a variety of programs that provide both physical and cognitive stimulation. These programs are offered for an hour at a time and can be provided to groups from as few as five to as many as fifty people. Some of the programs include the use of virtual reality, memory games, music, and much more. To schedule a recreational program, please call 631-319-3961
