As part of my real estate business, I love to work together with others who have a true heart to help seniors transition from their beloved home to a more manageable place.
Caring.com is the leading online destination for those seeking information and support as they care for aging parents, spouses, and other loved ones.
More than 40 million people in the United States care for someone over age 50, yet most have little preparation or experience when they begin their caregiving journey.
To make that journey a little easier, we provide personal, one-on-one guidance with a Family Advisor, thousands of original articles, helpful tools, comprehensive Senior Living and Senior Care directories, and the collective wisdom of an involved community. Caring.com’s carefully researched and expert-reviewed content includes advice from a team of more than 50 trusted leaders in geriatric medicine, law, finance, housing, and other key areas of healthcare and eldercare.
Our seasoned management team, editors, and technical staff have decades of experience producing award-winning health and family media. But perhaps more important, nearly all of us have firsthand experience as caregivers. We know well the role’s practical challenges as well as its emotional ones. And we’re dedicated to guiding a fast-growing population of new caregivers through both.
Wisconsin is home to almost one million senior citizens, and those aged 65 and older account for about 17% of the Badger State’s population. The Department of Health Services Bureau of Aging and Disability Resources oversees an array of programs to enhance the quality of life for Wisconsin seniors who choose to age in place at home. The state also gives seniors greater peace of mind about hiring help by closely regulating the personal care agencies that provide in-home services. Wisconsin seniors can expect to pay $4,767 per month for in-home assistance, which is about $475 more than the average paid nationally.
This guide offers insight into home care costs and financial assistance options to help cover the cost of in-home care, as well as low-cost and free resources that may benefit Wisconsin seniors who wish to remain in their own homes. Check out their website for more details caring.com/wisconsin
