Sioux Falls Storm Helpful Information

Wow what a week! The weather in Sioux Falls, SD has been something for the history books. Sioux Falls had 3 confirmed F2 tornados which caused a lot of damage. In fact, just one block east of the Kore Cares office several businesses were destroyed. We were very fortunate that the Kore Cares office only received minimal damage. We serve around 90 clients in the Sioux Falls area and had several clients effected by the storm, no one received any injuries but did receive damage to their homes. Our caregivers did any awesome job of navigating the wreckage and finding creative ways to get to client’s homes. Very grateful for our home care team and all they have done to support their clients in this challenging time. Also thank you to the Sioux Falls community members that are volunteering their time to help those in need.

Cost of In-Home Care vs. Nursing Homes

In healthcare, in-home care is the fastest growing service offering. More and more people are taking the necessary steps in their lives so they will be able to remain in their homes as long as possible. A hard decision for people (and family and friends involved in their care) in their later stages of life is deciding when or if they should go to a nursing home. Many do not want to choose that path, but without proper knowledge of what options are out there, they are left without a choice. Of course, when looking into care options, cost is a huge factor, so we have compiled pricing and benefit information to help make the decision easier.

3 Ways to Ease into Home Care

Sometimes accepting help can be difficult- especially in your own home where you are used to doing everything yourself; however, basic household tasks that use to be second nature can become not only difficult but also dangerous for some aging adults. Clients can occasionally be resistant to services, leaving their children at a loss and wanting to help. Adult children (sons and daughters of clients in home care) often reach out and wonder what they can do to get their parents to accept more help. If you are someone who happens to be struggling with this, here are a few strategies you can try:
