Today we’re discussing options for aging loved ones to receive the care they need right from their own homes.


The number of seniors and baby boomers continues to grow by the thousands each day. As health declines for those that are rising in age, questions often come up such as, who’s going to take care of mom or dad?

What happens if that parent has a long-term or a chronic illness and needs extra attention and assistance Well, we know that one option, besides putting them in some kind of a care facility, is home care.

Paul Christensen, Executive Director of Salus Homecare, joins me today to talk about what we can do for aging parents or seniors with health problems that require care but want to stay in the comfort of their own home. 

He shares how a family can determine whether a loved one is able to stay home or should be in a care facility, the benefits and average costs of home care, and what sets Salus Homecare apart from other agencies.


We Discuss:

  • Saying the right thing when you don’t know what to say
  • The changes that come when people get older and their health declines
  • What we can do for our aging loved ones that need assistance but want to stay home
  • What to look for when hiring a caregiver and customizing a plan based on individual needs
  • The potential consequences of hiring a private caregiver that’s not associated with an agency
  • How to determine when it’s time to place a loved one in a facility vs. when to keep them home
  • The average costs of home care and what longterm care insurance companies will cover
  • What sets Salus Homecare apart from other home care agencies
