It also happens to be home to a slightly larger percentage of seniors than most U.S. cities. Approximately 17.2% percent of Burlington’s population is age 65 or older, about 0.7% higher than the equivalent number in the average American city. The popular Burlington City Park draws all ages and is highlighted by wildlife trails and a charming antique carousel.

Burlington Home Care Resources 

Home care services are only one of the pieces needed for seniors to gracefully age in place. There are many services and programs that are low-cost or free, that enable seniors to enjoy an independent lifestyle in the comfort of their own home, such as help with home modifications, meal delivery services, and more.

Determining Your Loved One’s Need for In-Home Care

Aging can be a difficult process, and loved ones may not always ask for help – oftentimes it’s up to their family to evaluate their need for help around the house. While no two situations are exactly alike, this checklist can help you and your loved ones determine when it’s time to start the search for a home care provider.
