In 2012 I was tested Hepatitis b positive and 2014 diagnosed of Parkinson's PD, ever since then I have been taking my medications but I was still troubled and unhappy until I met this great herbal doctor DR SITHUU CEO of perfect health herbal medicine, though I never believe in herbal medicine before.

Elders don't want to admit they need help, it's daunting that they have reached this point. Explain that they don't need a nurse, they just need an extra pair of hands around the house, they will become much more receptive. Owning EvergreenChoice in NYC, I have found this works. Good luck

If you are looking for a great resource to find caregivers, I would highly recommend homecaring

Since I had written my answer on this thread almost a year ago, both my parents had passed, they were in their 90's. They kept telling me "we can manage" and I took them at their word. What they needed mostly was someone to drive there all over hill and dale, get groceries, take them shopping, ton of doctor appointments. etc. I was a senior citizen myself, I was no longer that 25 year old with a ton of energy.

My parents were in denial about their age/health and I was also in denial regarding their ability to age at home. Mom refused caregivers and cleaning crews. Not in HER house. Then there were the many calls that Dad had fallen and I couldn't pick him up, so 911 was called. Dad admitted that he and Mom have fallen down the stairs numerous times. Good grief, why are they still in THAT house? A team of wild horses couldn't make them budge.

Modern science can keep a person living into their early 100's, but that means the oldest adult child could be in their early 80's, thus very difficult to be a parent's caregiver. Thus the 50 or 60 something year old adult grandchild winds up cargiving for his/her own parents plus the grandparents on both sides if still alive [6 elders].... if married, maybe 8 elders.

Hopefully the current generation of family caregivers will start to downsize on their own after seeing all they had to go through with their own parent(s). And save big time to help pay for Independent Living facility and later Assisted Living/Memory Care. Aging at home can be exhausting to the adult child caregiver.... 40% of caregivers pass leaving behind a love one who needs care.

Sheba16 I enjoyed reading such simple practical advice. Seeing your paid home carer as a treat is having a really
posítive outlook & is taking
responsibility for your own
well being. Tips for
budgeting are great. Thanks & best wishes to you.

Very helpful article. Understanding when your parent needs care is crucial because they can ultimately hurt themselves in the long run if you do not get them help right away. Thank you for sharing!
