"What a wonderful job you did taking care of our Mom! …was a saint and a much loved companion for her.
Thank you for enabling her to live independently this past year – it made a world of difference to her..."
According to the U.S. Census Bureau, in 2025 the senior population is expected to reach 72 million and more and more families will be dealing with care decisions. There is now a free resource for family caregivers to help guide them through the sometimes complicated maze of home care decisions. The guide, produced by the Home Instead Senior Care® network, provides family caregivers with answers to a number of caregiving questions including: Who provides home care and what do they do? Are all home care companies the same? What questions do you ask when looking for a home care company? How much does home care cost?
Also featured in the guide are important distinctions between home health care and non-medical care, the signs to watch for that could signal when a specific type of home care is warranted, the differences between types of caregivers and what families need to know to protect their loved ones, and the various costs involved including the ways that exist to fund home care.
