To accommodate the growth of an aging adult population, Northern Kentucky Home Instead Senior Care moved its headquarters from Florence to an expanded facility in Fort Mitchell.
“We are growing fast in an industry that is experiencing explosive growth. The need for quality care for our area seniors has never been more acute, and Home Instead is set up to address this need,” says Eric Schuermann, owner and operator.
In 2014, a survey conducted for Home Instead Senior Care found that 43 percent of adult caregivers in the U.S., ages 35 to 62, live with a parent, stepparent or older relative for whom they, or someone in their home, provides care.
Schuermann says the new and expanded facility at 224 Grandview Drive, will allow him to thoroughly train and prepare Home Instead’s caregivers as well as become a community resource by hosting continuing education for caregivers, client families, senior care referral partners.
Most elderly clients, says Schuermann, prefer to remain in their home, but time that family caregivers put into the caring for elderly family members can take a toll on their own quality of life.
