Since 1969, GuardiaCare Services, Inc., a 501 (c)(3) non-profit organization, has been dedicated to promoting and supporting independent and stable lives for persons at financial and physical risk. GuardiaCare has historically played a leading role in elder abuse prevention by developing and implementing unique programs and services for older adults and their families. Throughout our history as a non-profit agency, GuardiaCare Services has established a reputation for integrity, trustworthiness, care and compassion in serving seniors and family members who care for them.GuardiaCare’s programs and services include:
- Adult Day Health Center – We provide a weekday program for seniors needing medical supervision in a safe, nurturing environment, with therapeutic activities, nutritious meals and snacks, and health and wellness monitoring based on individualized care plans.
- Guardianship – We serve as legally-appointed guardians to care for and manage the resources of adults who are at risk of neglect, abuse, and/or financial exploitation and are unable to manage their own affairs.
- Financial Management – We serve as representative payees for persons receiving public benefits such as Social Security and provide budgeting and bill-paying to ensure that individuals with limited abilities meet their basic needs and do not become homeless.
- Care Management Services – Our Elder Life Navigator enables seniors to live in the community for as long as possible, with the best quality of life they choose, by providing consultation and guidance to families who are planning for the aging journey with a parent, relative, or friend.
The agency is supported through program fees, Medicaid, foundations, government grants (including KIPDA and Metro Louisville), donations, special events and Metro United Way (which provides approximately 10% of our budget).
