Looking After Your Aging Parents

Looking After Your Aging Parents

As we get older, many of us require the care of others. If you’ve noticed that your parents are no longer able to look after themselves, it could be time to consider arranging some form of care. Here are just a few of your options.

Caring for them yourself

A lot of people choose to care for their aging parents themselves. This can save money on having to outsource care services, but it’s also the most physically and emotionally demanding option.

If your parent doesn’t live locally and you can’t conveniently pop around, you may have to consider moving them in with you. This could then mean making certain improvements to your home in order to accommodate their needs. You’ll then need to adjust your schedule around their care so that none of your commitments interfere.

There is financial support out there for carers. This includes government support and the possibility of charity support from organisations such as Turn2Us.

Hiring at-home care

Another option could be to hire at-home carers. The likes of these St Judes aged care providers could allow your parent to stay in their home whilst also relieving the responsibility of care from your shoulders.

There are various at-home care services out there. You’ll need to find a carer that you and your parent get on with and that can provide the level of care you need (including the right days and times).

Moving them into a care home

There’s also the option of moving your aging parent into a care home. Care homes have the advantage in that they allow round the clock care. They are the most expensive option unfortunately and therefore may require you or your parent having funds behind you.

There are a number of different care homes out there. It’s worth taking a tour of different homes to find one that you think will be suited to your parent’s needs and your budget.
