LOCATION and PHYSICAL SET-UP
“WHERE IS THE BEST SENIOR CARE FOR MOM?”
“What types of apartment are available?”
“Do you have outdoor space?”
Most children start living their own lives when they reach legal age and by the time their folks start needing care, they themselves start a family of their own, jobs and careers to juggle or schedules to set. In as much as they want to take care of their parents, circumstances may hinder that privilege.
When the need arises, folks need to accept the importance of home facilities, but throw guilt away because by doing so you show how much you care by placing them in the best and rightful place where they can be taken cared for. As such you would want it to be accessible for you too, to bring the kids to visit grandma and still share stories, and express to them the value of caring for the elders.
Indeed we all will go through this stage, it is truly inevitable. Think that in a few more years, this might be you then, and you would definitely want to be surrounded by grandchildren instead of just the friendly staff and intriguing housemates.
