Preventive Measures May Reduce Challenges for Seniors as They Age

As people age, they will face increasing challenges. Many of these challenges will result in health issues and potential physical limitations. It’s a difficult challenge for some aging seniors to acknowledge their own limitations or even the prospect that their safety has become compromised with age. Unfortunately, if they don’t address these concerns as early as possible and seek help when necessary, they could be putting themselves in a potentially dangerous situation.

Wisconsin’s Aggressive Crackdown on Medicaid Fraud May Have Hurt Some In-Home Health Care Nurses 

When Wisconsin’s former governor Scott Walker set about to crack down on Medicaid fraud, it was an ambitious undertaking. Medicaid fraud costs the federal and state governments billions of dollars every year. While the intention was to curtail a level of fraud that takes away money from those in need, it may have caught a number of legitimate in-home health care providers in its net.

Missouri’s DHSS Sees Smaller Savings Than Expected Following Cuts to In-Home Care 

Missouri’s Department of Health and Senior Services anticipated saving as much as $43 million through cuts it made to in-home care in 2017. However, while there was some savings, the actual amount fell far short of expectations.

How the ‘Walmart Effect’ Is Impacting Home Care Agencies’ Ability to Hire and Retain Staff

Mom-and-pop stores throughout the country would immediately feel the pressure of a new Walmart supercenter opening up within driving distance of their doors.
