We all have a favorite uncle. You know, the one who always had great stories to tell and made everybody laugh. The one who had the coolest car. Maybe he taught you how to play golf, or took you fishing and put the worm on the hook for you. So now the tables have turned and he’s the one who needs assistance, but you can’t be there every day.
Or maybe it’s Mom or Dad who can’t quite manage on their own any more. They took care of you for all those years, and now you want to be there for them. But it can be tough when the dynamic changes and you’re caring for the person who once cared for you.
Whether it’s your parents, a grandparent, aunt, uncle or a cherished friend you’re looking out for, we understand how the responsibility can wear on you … at work, at home and in your relationships with family and friends. Do you fear for your loved one’s safety, but hope to find a manageable way for them to remain in their home? Do you feel like you want to be there for them all the time but can’t manage? Maybe you’ve thought about a nursing home or assisted living facility? Or you might have even considered having your loved one move in with you. At Home Instead Senior Care we have the expertise to help you discuss these important matters with your family and the experience to help you make the right decision – wherever home may be.
