The Challenges of Caring For an Elderly Parent

Caring for an aging parent presents a variety of challenges. We hear of so many cases about children being thrown into the role of elder caregiver due to their parent falling, being hospitalized with an injury (many times a broken hip) and needing to be discharged with specialized care.

In some cases, caring for aging parents may not be due to accidents. Maybe you have been noticing warning signs. Maybe your elderly mother or father has wandered off, has lost a considerable amount of weight, has become withdrawn or rarely leaves the house. There could be a variety of reasons that children caring for elderly parents notice that signals to them that additional care may be needed.

For many caring for an elderly parent or relative is a daunting task, especially if you don’t live in the same city & this is the first time that they have had to accept the role of a caregiver.

Caring For Elderly Parents at Home

One of the options available for those who are elder caregivers is home care. Home care offers a solution to the other options of an assisted living facility or a nursing home. Home care is often defined as home health care, in home care or at home care. No matter what it is called, home care gives elderly parents and relatives the freedom to get the care they need while remaining safe and independent in their own homes.

For someone caring for an elderly mother, father or relative, Home health care can be used as a temporary solution. Maybe the elderly family member only needs care while they are recovering from an injury, surgery or illness. Home care can also be used in cases where care may need to be longer term; or in cases to assist with daily activities such as bathing, shopping, house keeping, etc.
