IDAHO FALLS — A local company is helping locals find the care they need for their aging loved ones at no cost to the families.
When Chance Powell began working in senior care he noticed a serious problem. Families didn’t know how to find the best care for their loved ones.
“They don’t know where to go, they don’t know what to do, they don’t know what financial programs are out there, they don’t know what community resources are out there. A lot of the time it felt like it was kind of deer in the headlights overwhelmed stressed,” Powell said.
He said in many situations, families don’t have a lot of time to make a decision for their loved one. He gave the example of someone have a massive stroke and can only stay in the hospital for a certain amount of time and likely will not return to normal life. Families have to decide what kind of care that loved one is going to need.
