More Seniors Aging at Home Spurs Need for More Care Workers
Date:1/15/2014

Chicago, IL (PRWEB) January 15, 2014

The American Association of Retired Persons (AARP) says that 90 percent of seniors want to “age in place,” or stay in their own homes as they get older. That means that as baby boomers reach retirement age, more caregivers than ever before will be needed to offer the best possible care to seniors to help them live independently.

In Home Personal Services is a premier senior care franchise offering affordable, quality non-medical care that allows older people to stay in their homes and gives their families peace of mind. The agency has set itself apart from its competitors by offering such features as flat rates for services, no daily or hourly minimums, and no long-term contracts, so that seniors and their families can customize their care according to their needs.

“The senior population is growing rapidly as boomers retire and start dealing with health problems that come with advanced age,” said Michael Collura, president of In Home Personal Services. “Most seniors believe they can maintain their independence for years to come, but adult children worry about their parents’ declining health. In Home Personal Services can offer assurance that someone is there to help them with such things as bathing, dressing, reminding them to take their medication, shopping, and meal preparation.”

According to AARP research, 82 percent of seniors surveyed said they would prefer to stay at home even if they start to need daily assistance or health care. Only a few would prefer moving into an assisted living facility or moving in with family. That means, though, that as they age, seniors will likely need to make modifications to make their home safer, or move into a new home with necessary features such as non-slip floors, hand rails, and an alert system. Seniors are also more likely to need a helping hand.

“We have found that much of the home care industry has not responded to the growing senior population and their needs and desires,” said Collura. “We work in a network of resources and partnerships to help civilian and veteran seniors attain the care they require. We also offer training above state and federal requirements, and do everything we can to provide older ones the help they need, while maintaining their dignity.”

In Home Personal Services currently provides services to hundreds of clients throughout the Chicagoland area, and has recently started expanding outside the state of Illinois.
