Good news from the Kenai Peninsula. The Kenai Peninsula Family Caregiver Support Program (KPFCSP) is now being administered by the Nikiski Senior Center.

I’m Dani Kebschull, program coordinator of the KPFCSP. I’ve lived on the Peninsula almost all of my life and have spent my career working with, and providing services for, family caregivers - including 10 years with the KPFCSP. I’m excited to help rebuild this program and aid in its growth for the entire Peninsula.

A caregiver can be anyone from a helpful neighbor who provides daily check-ins or helps with small tasks, to a live-in family member who helps with activities of daily living, such as dressing, bathing, grooming or eating.

The Kenai Peninsula Family Caregiver Support Program promotes the health and well-being of caregivers by providing:

Information and assistance accessing services

Respite

Caregiver support groups

Caregiver training

Supplemental services including Personal Care Assistance (PCA), chore, and other needed services to assist family caregivers care for their loved ones at home.

If you would like more information, feel free to call the Nikiski Senior Center at 907-776-7654 and ask for Dani. I look forward to what we can all do together.
