Don’t parent your parents … We can help!
July 14, 2020 by Living Assistance Services - Senior Home Care
If you feel guilty even admitting to yourself that you feel “forced” to visit and stay with your aging parents, I assure you that you’re not alone.
It’s a natural part of the evolving shift that takes place as we get old and our parents get older. You’re in a place where you no longer depend on your parents and have your own life and responsibilities, and now the burden of their needs is starting to take a toll. Throw in some good ol’ fashioned parent guilt (we’ve all been there!), and these visits can really put a strain on your relationship.
Are you exhausted because their needs are becoming too much for you and your parents to manage? Are you resentful of the expectations they’re placing on you? Invite us to have “the talk” with your parents about home care.
We can provide the benefits of having a couple of wonderful caregivers supervised by a full-time Registered Nurse (RN) to look after them.
Home care services help them… and you
Our caregivers are available to provide non-medical assistance (for example, light housekeeping, shopping, meal prep, and transportation to appointments), or companionship (playing cards and games, sharing a meal, going to the movies), as well as more involved care, such as bathing and hygiene, wound care, and medication reminders.
Our services are a flexible, cost-effective solution that can help your parents live healthier and happier, while also providing social support to help combat loneliness. For your convenience we are open 24/7 every day of the year.
Knowing that your parents are being looked after by caring and qualified professionals provides peace of mind and a sense of relief for adult children and other family members who want the best for them.
Best of all, by taking some – or all – of the caregiving duties off your plate; your time with your parents is focused on enjoying each other’s company without the added tension, resentment, or guilt that often accompanies being a family caregiver.
If you’re ready for help, our RN can review and assess your parents’ health and caregiving needs at no cost to you.
