Maintain Your Independence with Second Family Services
Sometimes the simplest services can provide the biggest benefits when you or your loved one needs a little extra help with daily living activities. Second Family support services from Friendship Haven help people enjoy continued independence in the privacy and comfort of their own home, at a much lower cost than traditional assisted living or nursing home care.
Many of the people we serve only need about one hour of assistance per day from Second Family, which is available at Friendship Haven.
