Family Care is a long-term care service system with goals to support people's independence, choice and access to services and supports to meet their needs, and improve overall quality of life through a cost-effective long-term care system. In our Western Wisconsin area of Trempealeau, Buffalo, Clark, Jackson, La Crosse, Monroe, Pepin, and Vernon, there are three managed care organizations that operate the Family Care Program, Care Wisconsin, Inclusa and My Choice. IRIS is a long-term care program where people are able to self-direct their publicly funded, community-based, long term care supports and services. The FCSP provides information and assistance to family members and friends who help or care for persons age 60 and older and/or grandparents or relative caregivers age 55 and older who are caring for children under age 19 or who are caring for a relative with a disability. The AFCSP provides information and assistance to family members and friends who help or care for individuals with Alzheimer's disease and related disorders regardless of age.
Our qualified staff can connect you, family and friends to a variety of agencies, programs, resources and information.
