Information for Boomers on Elderly Parents Care at your Fingertips.
This site is dedicated to children who care for their parents.
Over the years we have come to understand the joy and at the same time the very anxious feelings we get that being a “parent to a parent” can really bring.
day to day decision making as well as all of the details that were not
part of your life before that now have become yours to work through
developing the best care for your parents. From home repair to Doctor's appointments and choosing part-time caregivers to running errands to paying monthly bills to even making long term financial decisions for your parent.
We welcome your visit and would love to hear how we can make this site better for you, the caregiver.
On our Caregiver Forums and "What's New" pages there are listings of forums and blogs on various subjects - from anger and resentment of caregiving to sibling relationships of the caregiver and family, to elderly activities and easy crafts for the elderly, to concerns about Dad still driving and how others are coping.....please read what others are saying about having the same type of experiences in caregiving and leave a comment of your own about what you are experiencing or leave a question for other caregivers to answer.
We also know that because we are the fortunate ones to provide care for our parents we want to provide that care the best way we can.
The double duty of having two households and children to take care of, in addition to earning a living can be a daunting task.
We finally realized that information was one of the keys to survival (many subjects on elderly parent care can be found on the right hand navigation bar) and that searching for information we did not know existed added to our stress and confusion. It is with this thought in mind that we created this web site.
Our website on elderly care strives to bring to those who care for their parents the information needed to help in day to day life.
This site is dedicated to you, the chosen one.
We write and do research on multiple subjects weekly for relevant information as we know with your responsibilities it is difficult to take the time to do adequate research.
Sometimes it can be more reaction than action with your current situation and care for your elderly parent.
As they say “One less thing…….”
Some of the subjects covered for elderly care in the following and future pages include; how to choose the right housing (in home care, independent living, assisted living and nursing home care), anger and resentment, time management (yes, there is such a thing ), communication with parents and siblings, health care, nutrition, exercise, daily care, easy crafts/brain games, individual or group activities, and Medicare Medicaid, are just some of the areas we look into.
Please see the links in the right hand column for the information that may be of interest.
