Accepting Elderly Care
Accepting care for the first time is often difficult for many people and will generally involve the whole family. It is important that the individual receiving elderly care is involved in the decision making process at the earliest opportunity to ensure they feel in control of the situation and are making their own decisions. Being able to stay in the comfort and familiarity of your own home is easier and less traumatic then enduring the upheaval and disruption that comes from moving into a residential care home and potentially selling your home.
Support for all the family
Any home care provider should be experienced in dealing with these sensitivities and should work with you and your family to resolve issues and provide much needed reassurance and support throughout the whole decision making process. Ask the home care provider what family support they provide– some will offer events that can bring families together to share experiences and understand how to overcome challenges and concerns.
