Georgia's SFC program is part of the State's effort to increase access to community-based long-term care for a growing population of elders and adults with disabilities.  Seniorlink will use its secure mobile app, Vela, to connect family caregivers with experienced care coaches who offer practical, emotional and financial support to address the challenges of caregiving. Care coaches work with the state's care coordinators to ensure caregivers have access to the resources needed to manage the progression of their loved one's medical conditions and are paid a financial stipend for their work.

"We applaud the state of Georgia's commitment to providing family caregivers with the support they need to effectively, and confidently, care for their loved ones," said Thomas Riley, Seniorlink's President and CEO. "Georgia is joining a growing number of innovative state governments that are empowering families and, in doing so, improving outcomes and reducing the overall cost of care."
