Helping Seniors Stay Safely in their Homes:
Jonna Overson is the founder of Green Tree Homecare. She discovered her passion for helping seniors stay safely in their homes several years ago. She worked to develop a strong understanding of the home care environment and resources available to clients and their families. She takes an educational approach to home care advisement and loves giving clients the tools that they need to create a home care plan that is best for them.
Jonna considers the day a success when they can help a family feel secure that their loved one is comfortable and cared for in the security of their own home. She helps seniors stay safely in their homes. Their own homes. Often retirees are torn between their own retirement needs and the needs of their parents.
We discuss Enduring Care, which offers reduced rates for people on a fixed income.
We also discuss the full range of services Green Tree Home Care can provide. These can range from having someone for just a few hours a day to shop with groceries or just provide companionship all the way to or full-time care for your loved one. These services deal with helping seniors stay safely in their own hones.
One thing I found most interesting is that they provide specific activities to improve or sustain memory. Not all home care agencies do this. Jonna also discusses the difference between using a licensed agency and hiring an independent home care giver and what you need to look out for.
What do you think people should know BEFORE they retire?
Smart planning and dialogue early with family members regarding your long-term care as you age.
We have a lot of listeners who are new retirees or maybe feel stuck in their lives at the moment. If you were sitting across the table from a new retiree, what’s the one piece of advice that you would give to have a successful retirement?
Find something that interests you and get involved. Find ways to help your community.
