We are LifePath
At LifePath, we listen first, and then help each person find the best options for their unique needs. We help older adults and individuals with disabilities maintain independence in their own homes and communities. We help caregivers to find resources and support.
We believe all people have a fundamental right to maintain their quality of life, dignity, and independence, as valued members of our communities. Our guiding principles are choice, inclusion, well-being, community, stewardship, and social action.
As we have been for over 45 years, we'll be there offering options for independence.
