)-- CareMinders Home Care, specialists in home care assistance, introduced a new in-home senior care service that combines the full range of services people receive in assisted living facilities, residential homes or memory care suites in client’s homes-eliminating the need to move.
CEO John Dolejsi quoted an AARP Study that found “90% of seniors want to stay in their homes as they age.” CareMinders created the At-Home Assisted Living Care Division to provide this option for seniors. Senior clients are asking for full 24/7 live-in care in their homes as they age in place. In 2014, the State of Minnesota changed their licensing guidelines and combined the Class A Home Care License with the Assisted Living Class F license creating a new Comprehensive License. CareMinders now holds a Comprehensive license. Assisted Living facilities are growing rapidly to meet the growing population of seniors with affordable housing and services. At-Home Assisted Living Care Division is designed to deliver exceptional services in people’s homes where they want to live – whether that is in their private residence, town home, condominium, or apartment.
