Financial Assistance

Messiah Lifeways At Home recognizes that some clients in need of non-medical home care may not be able to afford it or are forced to limit their coverage due to the cost. Since August 2015 Messiah Lifeways At Home has worked with the Cheryl Kay Foundation (CKF), whose mission is to improve the quality of living and independence for senior citizens in financial need and for women battling breast cancer. They offer one-time financial grants that help offset the cost of care for qualified individuals by working with a limited number of non-profit home care providers like Messiah Lifeways At Home. These grants cover approximately 50 hours of care for people who otherwise may not be able to afford it, and provide families and clients peace of mind during what can be a very difficult time.
