Within the past week, Home Instead Senior Care has been featured prominently in two major news outlets – USA Today and CBS News. The focus of both stories is the Answering the Call program, which offers resources to help family caregivers manage the important emergency information of their aging parents.

USA Today
The focus of this story is on the original research conducted for the Home Instead Senior Care network, which led to the development of the program. Six hundred adults ages 45 to 65 were surveyed, and the results showed the following:

  • 31% don't know how many medications their parents take.
  • 34% don't know whether their parents have a safe deposit box or where the key is.
  • 36% don't know where their parents' financial information is located.

CBS News
Two sisters suddenly found themselves caring for their ailing mother upon discovery of a brain tumor are featured in this segment. With the help of the Home Instead Senior Care office serving Riverside, Calif., the sisters were able to reduce the burden of family caregiving and still remain active in the care of their beloved mom. As you can see in this video, finding the necessary medical and insurance information to care for your aging loved one can be akin to “finding a needle in a haystack.”
