A new name for Franklin County Home Care
Franklin County Home Care Corporation has some exciting news to share. After much careful consideration, our Board of Directors has decided to change our name to LifePath, Inc., Options for Independence. We are excited to share this news with you as we transition to our new name on March 1, 2016.
This decision was made thoughtfully and with the input of many in the community. Services like Home Care and Meals on Wheels have been at the center of our programs and have been so for more than 40 years. Our commitment to providing information and services by listening to each person, offering resources, and working together to find what will work best for them is steadfast. We seek to give caregivers assistance with the care they give to their loved ones by offering support and bringing peace of mind.
Over time, Franklin County Home Care has grown and changed. The range of services now includes counseling and assistance for benefits and health insurance; self-management workshops for healthy living; working with adults with chronic conditions; and supportive housing; to name a few. Some services extend beyond our core service area of Franklin County and the North Quabbin into Hampden and Hampshire Counties with SHINE, Adult Family Care, and Personal Care Assistance, as well as Elder Protective Services in Berkshire County. We always serve with the goal of offering options for independence for elders, people with disabilities, and their caregivers.
We appreciate the generous support our community gives to the agency in so many ways. We are fortunate to have a committed staff, dedicated volunteers, and collaborative community partners. One thing is staying the same: our commitment to serve you now and in the future as LifePath. Contact us anytime you need us or have questions.
Please Note: Our address and phone numbers all remain the same. As of March 1, 2016, the website will change to LifePathMA.org, and you can reach us on Facebook at www.facebook.com/LifePathMA. You can also reach us at 413-773-5555 or 978-544-2259. Call us. We’ll be there.
