New In-Home Care Service Offers Support to Miami Valley Seniors
DAYTON, OH - According to the United States Census Bureau, the number of Ohioans age 65 and over grew from 1.51 million to 1.57 million between 2000 and 2010. That 4 percent increase may seem insignificant, but not when factoring in the expense of caring for an increasing elder population.
An aging population means overcrowding and understaffing of nursing and assisted care facilities and people are choosing to remain in their own homes longer. Unfortunately, that kind of independence may require a level of personal assistance that families are ill-equipped to provide. One new business in Dayton offers a solution to some of these problems.
Golden Heart Senior Care of Miami Valley is a privately owned company offering non-medical in-home senior care, personal help and assisted living placement. Services are private pay and range from companion and personal care to Alzheimer’s dementia, and respite care.
Mark Bromagen is the co-manager at Golden Heart Senior Care of Miami Valley. He, along with his wife and co-manager Kim, established the company in the Dayton area to serve the people and region they know best. “I was born and raised in the Miami Valley and I want to help the people in my community and surrounding areas,” Bromagen says.
Caregivers from Golden Heart Senior Care offer 24-hour, 7-day services to help elderly clients remain in their homes longer while still living full, productive lives free of some daily tasks that may have become more difficult as time passed. They can assist with personal care needs like bathing, meal preparation and mobility as well as grocery shopping, managing bills and keeping up with medications and appointments.
Though their company is part of the national Golden Heart Senior Care, Inc. organization based in Las Vegas, Nevada, the Bromagens have set out to provide personalized service that meets the needs of Miami Valley residents.
“Each client has unique needs and we perform client assessments to understand exactly what the client and their family need,” says Kim Bromagen. “Then we search the skills and strengths of our caregivers and match the best caregiver to the client. We do not believe in a one size fits all; each client is unique.”
For those who are apprehensive about having strangers in the home, they can rest assured. According to Mark Bromagen, “All of our caregivers are thoroughly screened and background checked.”
In addition to personal assistance, home monitoring technologies are also available for those times when an individual may be alone. In partnership with American Medical Alert, Golden Heart Senior Care offers emergency response through two-way verbal and medical status monitoring. Direct alert technology such as VoicCare and MedSmart can ensure early medical intervention and provides quicker response in the event of a fall, stroke, heart attack or other emergency.
With nursing care costs skyrocketing, having the option to maintain safe, productive independence with the help of caring, qualified people is a growing need. Golden Heart Senior Care is working to meet that need in the Dayton, Miami Valley region.
“We provide high quality care at great prices and we want to make a difference that will keep the client at home longer,” says Kim Bromagen. “We want people to know that our caregivers are going to care for their clients just like they would care for their own grandparents.”
