Elderly Care in Crawfordville FL
Remember the person in need of home care will likely want to remain independent, even with outside help. Therefore, don’t come in like gangbusters and insist on knowing what’s best for them. Letting them discuss options for their care will show them that you have their best interests at heart, without being downright bossy.
Elderly care is a touchy subject, because it has to be handled correctly, without making the person feel they are old and worthless. Once people realize they are in need of home care, they tend to think the end is near and their quality of life is on the downslide! Nothing could be further than the truth! Just look at some of the recent news makers:
Harper Lee, 88, is planning to publish her new novel, Go Set A Watchman. The book will be released later this year and is already the buzz of the publishing world.
Dolores Durando, 90, realized her lifelong dream of publishing her first novel, Beyond the Bougainvillea.
Those are just two examples of seniors making their mark on the world. Not every senior is ready to set the world on fire, or wants to; rather, a life filled with quality family time and having the ability to foster their own interests can lead to a satisfying life, even in their golden years. Make your senior family member feel they are important to you by providing them with options, and reminding them that living in a way that they want to live is important to you, and to them.
If you both take the time now to plan what is best, you will have the satisfaction they that are well cared for, and that’s all you ever wanted for them.
