Caring for the Elderly

by LuSanya

I'm coping day by day and with lots of prayer. The older they get they tend to become more stubborn, forgetfulness, and sometimes even more argumentative and they hate to face that their independence is somewhat coming to an end. As I take care of my elderly mother, many questions come to my mind.


How will I be when I get old? Will my daughter take care of me? It's a struggle dealing with an aging parent, but, we all will become old one day. The best way to cope with this, is, try not to become frustrated, approach little outbursts from them in a humorous manner after all laughter is good for the soul.

But, the main thing is to love them with all your heart and provide a comfortable and loving living arrangement, because one day, we will miss them immensely. :)
