A Close Look at How Home Care Helps Seniors Age in Place

Most seniors want to stay in their homes as long as they can, and home care is usually a less expensive option than going to a nursing home.

An in-depth article by Duluth News Tribune Reporter John Lundy takes a look at home care services in the Duluth area, including Ecumen Home Care-Lakeshore.

Heidi Laura, director of home care for Ecumen Home-Lakeshore, tells Lundy that home care “is a lot better financial option for many people.”  Some people don’t need around-the-clock supervision — just a little help around the house or medical services that can easily be provided in the home.
