What we aim to solve New!

An increasing number of aging Americans wish to continue living in their own homes or with family rather than move into residential care (nursing homes, assisted living, memory care). This number is increasing dramatically as Baby Boomers age. Even the most loving family is challenged to meet all the care needs of their elder. Of course, some elders lack a support system, so their needs are even more difficult to address. The incidence of dementia is also increasing exponentially. Dementia – whether caused by Alzheimer’s disease, vascular issues, traumatic brain injury, or other conditions – brings specific care needs and a need for training on the degenerative progression of the disease, strategies for dealing with difficult behaviors, and help dealing with the emotional issues which inevitable arise. Additionally, caregiving can be exhausting and overwhelming, especially without respite from the responsibility of assuring the well-being of a loved one with serious impairments.

St. John's Community Care offers affordable alternatives to residential care while protecting the dignity and independence of the individual living with physical or intellectual impairments. We try to enable each person to live their best possible life. We recognize that families play a key role in maintaining an elder's well-being. We also recognize that family caregivers need help -- training, emotional support, information on local services, financial resources -- in order to care well for their loved one without becoming exhausted, impoverished, or overwhelmed. For those reasons, St. John's offers assistance to family caregivers with the goal of enabling them to cope with caregiving responsibilities while maintaining a good quality of life for themselves and the rest of the family.

We accomplish this by providing dependable and compassionate support through direct care, advocacy, education, and outreach to individuals living in the St. Louis Metro-East Community through * Adult Day Services in Collinsville and Edwardsville (6:30 am - 6:00 pm) -- Staff specially trained for dementia care -- RN on duty at each site -- Focus on involving participants in activities -- Available PT, ST, OT on-site through Medicare Part B coverage -- Art Therapy Counseling at each site weekly -- Multiple pay sources (state programs for eligible individuals, VA, private pay) * Home Services -- light housekeeping, meal prep, laundry, personal care (bathing, incontinence care) * Support Groups for family caregivers * Training for family caregivers (2 annual workshops; Savvy Caregiver classes for families living with dementia) * Loans of small medical equipment (wheelchairs, walkers, bath benches, etc.)

Since 1985, we have offered in-home and adult day services that provide companionship, a well-rounded activity and socialization program, family/caregiver support, and wellness monitoring. Direct services include help with meals, shopping, laundry, transportation, and personal care. We provide caregiver support for adults who face short- or long-term disability and seniors in several area retirement communities. Family members with loved ones in hospice settings, nursing homes, and hospitals rely on our caregivers when they need a break. Our programs and services help care receivers remain in their home setting, delaying and sometimes entirely avoiding nursing home stays. We also offer medical equipment loans.

Attendance at caregiver support groups + surveys Evaluations at caregiver conferences/trainings Enrollments in Adult Day or Home Services Programs -- especially those enrolled following family caregiver attendance at workshop or support group Surveys of clients and families using Adult Day or Home Services Programs

Since 1985, we have helped many families find the caregiving support they need. A number of our clients have required 24-hour care, which Home Services provides. Other Home Services clients require less help to maintain their independence. Home Services helps with shifts of as little as 2 hours, giving the client flexible options to meet their needs. Some families want the social interaction Adult Day includes, and others need the specialized memory care we offer adults with dementia. Families can enroll their loved one for as little as 4 hours or as much as 50 hours/week. Our support groups and caregiver training helps caregivers address their unjustified guilt and understand that accepting caregiving assistance can actually improve quality of life for the entire family. We are initiating programming for individuals with Early Stage Memory Loss as there is currently little support for them.

Organizational Demographics

In order to support nonprofits and gain valuable insight for the sector, GuideStar worked with D5—a five-year initiative to advance diversity, equity, and inclusion in philanthropy—in creating a questionnaire. This section is a voluntary questionnaire that empowers organizations to share information on the demographics of who works in and leads organizations. To protect the identity of individuals, we do not display sexual orientation or disability information for organizations with fewer than 15 staff. Any values displayed in this section are percentages of the total number of individuals in each category (e.g. 20% of all Board members for X organization are female).
