You wouldn’t pick just a random daycare off the internet for your newborn so why would you choose random in-home skilled care for your elderly loved one?
Consider this; Life is a beautiful circle of giving care and needing care and in every stage, you deserve the very best. These are our mothers, our fathers, our pillars of strength and wisdom and they have come fully around this circle of life and are now needing the loving assistance of others to help them thrive in their silver years.
It’s important to consider the specific needs of your loved one and choose care for them accordingly. Do they need a lot of help or just a little? Will they be willing to accept that care or will they need some encouragement before the arrangement will work for everyone? Don’t forget that these are treasured people in your life who should settle for nothing but the best care as they round out their circle of life.
This decision should not be rushed and can often take some time finding the perfect fit. Though cost is often a factor, you cannot put a price on the feeling of love and security that our loved ones require during this precious time.
It shouldn’t have to be said but remember they are real people with real feelings and should always be a part of the process in some way. Finding the right fit for assistance is incredibly important to all family members and any valid and healthy opinion should be considered.
Put yourself in their shoes and ask yourself what will help them to feel strong and confident while accepting the amount of help that Is beneficial to their thriving during these years. Remember we all play a part in this circle of life and your part in helping them find care is a brilliant thread in the beautiful tapestry of life. <3
