This is not exactly a new sentiment. You heard it long before it became relevant.

Watching loved ones grow old is not for the faint of heart.

This one sneaks up on you. The seemingly small changes in your parents’ physical abilities, mental astuteness, and general outlook have tugged at your heart for quite some time, but now they have somehow accumulated to make you face the music…they are obviously not going to live forever.

Being an adult child of an aging parent is not for the faint of heart.

This is your new mantra. You’ve realized that not only are your parents not going to live forever, they can’t even live alone any longer. All of a sudden, it is up to you to figure out how to keep them safe, make them comfortable, prevent their loneliness, make sure they eat properly, provide mental stimulation, keep their environment clean, ensure their personal hygiene, maintain their medication schedule, get them to their doctors’ appointments, and generally enhance their quality of life, all while meeting your own obligations and living your own life. NOT POSSIBLE!

Fortunately, there is a very effective compromise that satisfies all the demands, plus assures a set of eyes that can monitor your parents’ daily activities and let you know when things are changing ever so slightly….yet again. The peace of mind this decision affords is worth the investment. A home care companion, accurately called a caregiver, can assimilate into your parents’ lives and do what you can’t, all while keeping your parents exactly where they want to be… at home.
