Senior Care Solutions near Manhasset, NY
It was not too long ago when I felt that my life was moving along exactly how I had hoped it would be where I had a good job, a supportive family, got to spend time with quality friends, and the future was looking bright. When my elderly mother slipped and fell, I didn’t think twice about stepping up to offer her the proper level of senior care.
I figured that I had the time to stop by her house every day to make sure that she had everything she needed and to give her the support she required. I didn’t know the first thing about being a senior care provider, but I figured it couldn’t be that hard. After all, I had raised three children on my own so how difficult could it be to take care of my mother?
What I found relatively quickly was that senior care services is a lot more involved than I thought from the beginning. I knew that my mother was going to require some period of time to recover from her injuries due to the fall. I just didn’t realize how much support she was going to need.
She ended up calling me early in the morning to encourage me to stop by before work. At night she would be calling me after I had just left her house to come back and help her with something else. I spent less and less time with my own family, didn’t get to see my friends anymore, and I felt that I was being overwhelmed by this entire aspect of senior care.
I tried to talk to my family about this but they didn’t seem to understand just how stressful the situation had become. Finally I was driving to work one day and heard an ad on the radio for home care providers. I decided to contact a couple of agencies in the area and found that there were plenty of options available for my mother as well as for me.
It was actually a relief, but I knew I had to convince my mother that this was the best thing for her. That was a bit challenging, but once she realized the toll that my efforts were taking on me, she agreed to hire senior care services through one of these agencies. If you are providing senior care for a loved one, and if you feel overwhelmed at times, just know that the solution is well within reach. All you need to do is consider hiring a professional senior care provider.
