Springhurst Health Teri Gottschalk

Teri House Gottschalk from Springhurst Health Campus spoke to us about Senior Living and Springhurst here in Greenfield. We learned that “nursing home” is an outdated term, because there are several levels and variations of senior living from living in your own home to Adult Day Care to Facility Based Long Term Care among others with various costs associated. Springhurst is the only Full Continuum (has all levels of care) in Hancock County. Teri suggested making these decisions before you need to experience them. She also encouraged us to visit any site you may be considering rather than relying on Internet reviews which may be false. Beyond Medicare & Medicaid, these services can be paid for with VA Aid, Long Term Care Insurance, and personal funds. Resources for help beyond your physician include:
Senior Services-SHIP Counselor (317) 462-3758 or 1870 Fields Drive in Greenfield
Hancock Co. Veterans Service Office (317) 462-8767 or 98 E North Street in Greenfield
Alzheimer’s Assoc. alz.org, (317) 575-9620, 50 E. 91st Street in Indy, or the 24/7 helpline 18002723900
