The traditional option for seniors finding difficulty with household tasks and bathing or toileting was to enter an assisted living or skilled nursing facility, thus completely uprooting them from their home and sometimes local community.
“According to an AARP study, 90% of seniors want to age at home for as long as possible,” says Home Instead Green Bay Branch Manager Catherine Hougard. “With the way the home care industry has evolved, that request has become a reality for our clients. Our Green Bay area CAREGivers provide in home care for everything from companionship, home helper, medication reminders, and personal cares – all in the comfort of seniors’ homes, which puts everyone involved more at ease.”
Home care is a still considered a newer option to the industry, which was a result of demand from the senior population. “Our clients have worked hard and experienced so much throughout their lives, that it only makes sense to create a safe environment that supports quality of life within the residence of their choosing,” commented Catherine. “What sets our CAREGivers apart, is the evidence-based Home Instead Senior Care professional training in Personal Cares and Alzheimer’s & Other Dementias delivered by our CAREGiver Trainer, MaryJo Tisdale.”
