The Future of Senior Homecare

The future of Senior Homecare has entered into discussions about the upcoming changes in U.S. Healthcare.  One article in today’s Journal of  the American Medical Association, JAMA, stands out.    Dr. Steve Landers, former director of the Cleveland Clinic’s homecare program, and advisor to Hanson Services, discusses a need to look deeper into the Medicare Homecare benefit, which focuses on the medical visits to patients at home.  Dr. Landers supports the idea of “aging in Place” which is why he was so beneficial to us at Hanson Services.
