Firsthand experience facing the challenges of caring for individuals with functional needs inspired the development of Shella Care Management Services and the Shella foundation by the Foster family in 2004. Our aspiration is to assist families encountering those same difficulties in a “family friendly” environment. Today “Shella” serves families and individuals in five counties by helping them to receive the programs and services that they need to remain in their own homes.
The Shella Foundation’s mission is to:
“Provide comprehensive care management and assistance in all aspects of personal care, including financial assistance to individuals and families affected by disabilities or functional needs.”
If you or someone you know is in need of additional In Home support or financial assistance for In Home Care please contact us at “The Shella Foundation.”
is the provision of short-term, temporary relief to those who are caring for family members who might otherwise require permanent placement in a facility outside the home. Respite programs provide planned short-term and time-limited breaks for families and other unpaid care givers of children with a developmental delay and adults with an intellectual disability in order to support and maintain the primary care giving relationship. Respite also provides a positive experience for the person receiving care.
Because we work with care providers throughout our service area, Shella Foundation is in a unique position to match you with the provider best suited to meet your needs.
The Shella Foundation grant program helps reduce the cost of respite care for families caring for loved ones. Contact one of our specialists today for more information – (951) 723-8460.
Too often we under-estimate the power of a touch, a smile, a kind word, a listening ear, an honest compliment, or the smallest act of caring, all of which have the potential to turn a life around. -- Dr. Felice Leonardo Buscaglia
No Matter the Size
...your gifts make a difference
The Shella Foundation began with a Mission of helping families that could not afford personal care. Since 2004 our programs and services have grown and we continue to help Family Caregivers provide the best care possible for their friends and loved ones. We cannot continue to do what we do without your help.
