In-Home Care Tip: We Understand Your Struggle and We Are Here to Help You Care For Your Senior Parents
As mothers and daughters, we want to give our parents and our children the world. After all, our parents have sacrificed so much to make us who we are today. The concept of forcing them to live out their final years in an environment that is unfamiliar to them can be too much to bear.
Most Seniors Want to Age at Home
Elderly parents tend to choose to live at home — in an environment that is safe and familiar to them. Most of them steadfastly refuse to enter a nursing care facility. When they need more care than a family member is able to offer, most of us experience feelings of guilt. We don’t wish to hand off our responsibilities onto someone else, but we also struggle to find the time to give our loved ones the complete in-home care they need.
When you are experiencing the stress that comes with balancing a career, running a household, handling all of the chores, feeding your family members, missing dates with your husband, spending time with your grandchildren who seem to grow from week to week, and trying to care for your aging parents whose needs are ever increasing, the amount of tasks on your plate can be completely overwhelming. We understand how you feel.
While Your Plate is Getting Full, the Needs of Your Aging Parents Grow
While you find time to call your parents on a daily basis, visit them for 30 minutes every other day, and for a few hours during the weekend, at some point this is simply not enough.
When many of our loved ones reach the age of 75, they need professional part-time or full-time care. That type of care goes above and beyond what even the most well intentioned family members can provide.
Spending all of our time worrying about the safety of our loved ones can even start to effect our work performance and our ability to care for the rest of our immediate family members. An in-home caregiver is able to lift that stress from your shoulders and provide you with the peace of mind that comes with knowing that the people who mean the most to you are kept safe and sound.
We Are Better Together
Doing it alone is overwhelming. If you are a female professional who is struggling to do it all alone, you can work in concert with a caregiver whose profession is to care for your mom and dad when you are unable to do so. Many families choose to hire senior care Monday through Friday — when the family members are at work. During the weekend, family members take turns to visit and care for their aging loved ones. That way the parents are cared for and everyone is fulfilled by doing their part. We really are better together.
Our parents have given us so much. When it is time to reciprocate the favor by allowing them to live out their final years at home, professional eldercare service gives the families the needed help to remain in control of every aspect of their busy professional and personal life. We are here to help. We care and we understand your struggle. We are here to help you care for your loved one.
