When you love what you do, it's not work.

GuardiaCare Services, Inc. started as a parish outreach of St. William Catholic Church in 1969 with a neighborhood assistance program. A primary focus of services was to assist neighbors with money management. The program grew into a representative payee program which prompted the parish to create an independent, nonprofit 501(c)(3), nonsectarian agency in 1984. Initially, St. William Center operated from the church facilities and the day care program, begun in 1988, operated in the California Community Center.

In 1999 the agency purchased its current site at 215 West Breckinridge Street and combined all its programming into the new location. Seeking to better identify its services to the community, on. April 8, 2002, St. William Center changed its name to GuardiaCare Services, Inc. The agency currently serves more than 425 persons at risk of abuse and/or exploitation. The Adult Day Center has a current daily capacity of 38 seniors.

GuardiaCare is the only agency in the state providing professional guardian, conservator, curator, and representative payee services in a single agency. The agency continues to grow and make history for the Louisville Metro area.

Adopt a Senior

The Adopt-A-Senior Club strives to prevent senior citizens from falling victim to financial and physical abuse.

Currently more than 1.5 million impaired older people use some type of community service (adult day care, meals on wheels, assistance with financial matters). That number is expected to grow to 2.4 million seniors by the year 2020.

GuardiaCare is at the forefront in the battle against senior abuse. GuardiaCare needs your support in assuring seniors are free from financial and physical abuse. The following list demonstrates some of the services we provide for our seniors, along with the costs of providing these services. Your monthly pledge assures that these seniors are safe, secure, and have access to medical care.

Get The Emotional Support You Need

A support group provides a safe, supportive environment to allow family members, friends, caregivers, and other interested individuals to meet regularly for mutual support and to exchange coping skills with one another in matters relating to caregiving.  All support groups are free and open to the public and are of no religious affiliation unless otherwise designated.
