As we learn to navigate life during the coronavirus pandemic, you may be wondering how home health care options have been impacted.

  • Are you a family caregiver who has utilized or is considering using in-home care?
  • Are you considering moving your parents out of a senior living facility into your own home, but know you will still need caregiving assistance?
  • Does your aging parent need help at home, but with COVID-19 as a very real threat to people over the age of 65, you worry about how safe it would be to have a caregiver in your loved one’s home?
  • Are you like me, a mature adult who feels strongly about aging in place, and you want to know how COVID-19 may have reshaped the home care landscape?

If you answered “yes” to any of these questions, today’s episode is perfect for you.

To kick off Season Three of Help Choose Home, host Merrily Orsini welcomes Lora Masci Weagle, Director of Client Relations, and Adrianne Mann, RN, BSN, MSHA, Executive Director of HCR Home Care, which has been providing in-home care services for clients in upstate New York since 1978.

  • The importance of educating and collaborating with referral sources
