If you've reached a point in your life where you need more care, you might be thinking about an assisted living facility or nursing home. But, those options may not be in your best interest. If you're still able to get around and you want to maintain some of your independence, it's time to consider in-home health care. In-home health care gives you the assistance you need, without the loss of independence.
If you take care of a loved on who is at home and requires care around the clock, you have a lot on your plate. You have a lot to consider regarding your loved one's health. It is important that you pay close attention to your loved one's health, but you also need to take care of yourself. These are a few things you can do to ease the physical and emotional strain on your body and mind.
I have a passion for seniors. When I was growing up, my granny was my best friend. She helped me with my homework every day after school and was always ready to lend an ear when I needed someone to talk to. As I grew older and my grandmother did as well, she developed dementia. My parents, siblings, and I all took turns visiting her home to give her the extra care she needed. I learned a lot during this experience and know there are others out there with elderly relatives they are already caring for or suspect may need some extra care. I decided to create a blog to share my senior care tips with anyone and everyone who needs the advice. Come back often for new posts!
