Eldercare for each of the several million middle-aged children who are coping with their aging parents means something different. The “Baby Boom” generation are struggling to care for their parents. As the caregiver, are you concerned about any of the following:
- Are you worried about your elderly parents still living in their own home and community?
- Is their personal safety trouble you, or their ability to drive safely, especially at night?
- Do you wonder how many more days you can take off from work to assist them, before you adversely affect your job?
- Is a nursing home a “last resort” in their way of thinking?
- Do you wonder how the bills will be paid as they get older and need more assistance?
If you answer “Yes”, then you are coping with “eldercare”. Eldercare can creep up on a person gradually, taking more time away from other activities. It often hits hard, when a parent suddenly shows an inability to care for him or herself in an activity that could always be managed independently in earlier days. This could be due to an illness, a fall, stroke, or other health event and when the need for eldercare arises, it can be frightening. The children’s responsibility can last a long time as well as unexpected expenses. Until recently, eldercare consisted mostly of a family’s own resources. The traditional three- or four-generation family household has largely disappeared,resulting in eldercare being more difficult to provide at home.
Woodwardhome.org understand this complex and demanding situation and can help you balance between caring for the your parent and looking after the caregivers. We believe that through advance planning, early intervention and careful case management and monitoring, care can be provided at the most appropriate and at a minimum cost. Most family caregivers are not able to provide those services and locate at a cost effective manner those services or service providers as required.
The population of the U.S. is aging- and in record numbers, living longer and are usually healthier than previous generations. The longer life span, however, demands that individuals plan earlier and smarter for the years of old age. More services and agencies are serving the needs of elderly persons than ever before. Accessing that maze of resources and services can be frustrating for elderly people and their families. We can provide the necessary assistance that you need.
