A Qualified Healthcare Professional
At the end of the day, you are not a qualified healthcare professional. You most likely love and cherish your aging parent. You provide well-rounded care for their medical and everyday needs. However, you simply don’t have the medical experience to deal with certain issues. This can be especially true when your parent is suffering from dementia, Alzheimer’s, depression or recovering from a medical injury. There may be certain tasks that are outside of your scope of understanding. Your parent may also grow resentful of certain things like reminders to take medications, help with hygiene care, and cooking foods that are right for their diet. Instead of stressing over the things you are struggling with or cannot do, enlist the help of a professional from a community health service.
You Need the Help
Community health services also provide help with cooking and light house cleaning tasks. If your parent lives at home with you and your children, you more than likely need this services. Having someone help with laundry, dishes, cleaning bathrooms, and maybe vacuuming could be invaluable. Getting the little extra help and relieving some of your stress may also free you up to enjoy your aging parent’s company more freely.
If your parent is recovering from a fall or stroke, in-home therapy can save a lot of time and effort. Instead of your parent having to get dressed, load into the car and wait in a busy waiting room, a therapist can come to you. A therapist can help with speech therapy, physical therapy and Alzheimer’s therapy as well. Your parent can be free to put a full range of effort into the needed exercise without embarrassment of other patients present.
