Caring For A Parent? Here Are Some Tips Caring For A Parent? Here Are Some Tips November 14 Sam Bradford Black Jersey , 2015 | Author: Agatha Lebouef | Posted in Home and Family
We all hope to live full and independent lives well into our 80s and 90s, but the reality is that sometimes people need at least some help managing their day-to-day tasks as they get older. Often this help comes from our adult children who might provide just a couple of hours of assistance each week or perhaps much more help. While running a few errands or helping with a few chores might not be difficult, if your parent needs more help, this can put stress on your daily life. Here are a few ways to reduce the stress and make life easier for everyone.
Take stock of your parent’s home and do what you can to make it easier for them to deal with daily tasks. For instance, area rugs and loose carpeting can be hazardous as well as uneven flooring areas, so remove rugs and fix up flooring. Add handles in the bathroom and non-skid mats to the tub or even install a sit-down tub to make bathing easy and safe. Remove stairs in the front or backyard and replace them with ramps, and be sure there are sturdy rails to grab. In the bedroom Everson Griffen Black Jersey , make sure the bed is low enough to get in and out of easily and put a nightlight in every room.
Other ways to make independent life easier include taking stock of the kitchen. Make sure plates, cups and other items are easy to access and not too high or that drawers are easy to open. Be sure the cupboards are stocked with canned and dry goods and a few frozen dinners are on hand, so that there is always something to eat. Also consider buying an easy to use electric can opener, well as a toaster oven and microwave to make meal preparation faster. Daily pill organizers can ensure that medicines are taken regularly and can be placed on a kitchen counter.
It’s also wise to have a conversation with your parent about finances. At some point, you also will want to talk about wills, trusts and directives. It’s good to know where information is kept in case of emergency, but if your parent seems to need or want some help with paying bills and managing a budget Eric Kendricks Black Jersey , you need to know the location of all of the pertinent information. If their budget permits, it might be nice to have some in-home care. This might include having someone come in and complete housekeeping chores once each week and perhaps assisting with shopping, grooming and dressing chores.
Selecting the right person for in-home care can be tricky and you definitely want to find someone trustworthy and personable. An agency such as CarePlacement screens licensed professionals in your area and can compile a list of potential caregivers for you. You simply fill out a questionnaire detailing the types of services you need, as well as your current budget and they will find you several solid candidates.
After receiving a list of potential caregivers, it is time for the interviews. You and your parent should sit down and write out some questions. Ask them about references and qualifications and have them describe their previous clients and what services were provided to those clients. Be sure to have a written contract that lists all of the services that are included in the set monthly rates. Also ask about what happens if circumstances change, such as your parent needs more help or perhaps the caregiver is sick on a given day and a replacement needs to be found.
