On February 20th, 2022, The Times of Northwest Indiana published an article titled “Agencies offer tips, support to help seniors age in place” featuring RN Katelynn Jansma of Caregiver Homes. 

 

The article highlights some of the unforeseen challenges that come along with aging in place, such as the difficulty of accessing services and making modifications to the home ahead of time.
