The announcement of Health Force of Georgia’s new homecare support program is intended to help keep Georgia families together by offering financial and other kinds of assistance to those who want to take care of their loved ones.
The SFC program is one of several Georgia waiver programs that help qualifying state residents make use of Medicaid benefits that allow them to receive reduced-cost or no-cost home healthcare services. These programs offer several kinds of essential care, such as help with managing care needs, assistance with daily living activities, at-home nursing and physical therapy, caregiver relief, and emergency response systems.
The program specifically provides a tax-free weekly stipend paid via direct deposit, guidance via phone and email from a professional health coach, and customized daily care plans developed by experienced medical staff. These features provide an alternative source of assistance to family caregivers who would otherwise have to reduce time at their jobs or leave them altogether, without compensation.

For over 30 years, Health Force of Georgia has served thousands of Atlanta families and medical facilities. From its beginning, the company’s mission has been to provide families with comprehensive, compassionate at-home care to give their loved ones the best possible quality of life. The company has also supplied medical facilities’ staffing needs to help reduce payroll expenses and improve patient care.
A satisfied family caregiver has said: “In researching agencies to assist my daughter, I was fortunate to have connected with Health Force of Georgia. They provided tremendous logistical support, as well as being empathetic to our circumstances. We look forward to working with them as we move towards a great solution to our family challenges.”
