How can I help my aging parents?

Showing compassion and empathy toward your parents is the first step. It’s hard losing independence, adjusting to physical challenges and fearing the next steps. Parents often don’t want to be a burden on their children. Providing all options and discussing them will give your parents some control over their choices. If your parents are in an unsafe situation and they reject the idea of help you may need to enlist professional help. Freedom Home Care has Case Managers who can help your parents and their families by assessing their needs and providing available options for care. Seeking guidance is important because a third party can facilitate dialogue and provide resources for your parents. Home care, Case Management, Medication Management and the Emergency Contact Service may be a viable solution and give peace of mind to you and your parents. Becoming a care partner with your parents will enrich their life as well as yours.
