Who We Are
Friends Life Care is part of Friends Life Care Partners (FLCP). FLCP is the holding company for two subsidiaries: Friends Life Care Consultants (FLCC) and Friends Life Care. Friends Life Care is an aging in place membership program. The program has proven results through a focus on prevention, holistic wellbeing and financial security.
Friends Life Care Consultants partners with other businesses to develop and implement Continuing Care at Home initiatives. FLCC’s business-to-business consulting services are an especially good fit for Life Plan Communities (LPC)/Continuing Care Retirement Communities (CCRC) and LTCI Carriers.
Two Pennsylvania Quaker Organizations supported the establishment of Friends Life Care: Jeanes Health System and Foulkeways, one of the first continuing care retirement communities in the nation. In 1982, Friends Services Alliance approached these two organizations and encouraged them to establish an independent nonprofit joint venture to study and create the first continuing care at home plan. With grants from the Robert Wood Johnson Fund and the Pew Charitable Trusts, the joint venture set out to develop an innovative life care plan—an affordable and pioneering alternative to traditional continuing care retirement communities. This new plan would allow members to stay in their own homes and receive all the home care and related services they may need as they age. In 1990, Friends Life Care began operations with 78 members enrolled. Regulated by the Pennsylvania Department of Insurance as a continuing care retirement community without walls, Friends Life Care is the first and largest program of its kind in the country.
Today, more than 5,000 individuals have been served through membership in Friends Life Care. Friends Life Care does not discriminate on the basis of age, race, color, religion, sex, gender identity, sexual orientation, gender expression, marital status, national origin, genetic information, citizenship, Veteran status, disability, or any other legally protected characteristic.
