Be ready for an emergency call
If you are in your 40s, your parents are probably in their 70’s. You need to be ready for an emergency. You need to get educated on assisted living. This scenario could happen to you. Make sure you are prepared.
You got a call at midnight. Your mom had a stroke. Mom was in the hospital, again. This time it was the ICU. Doctors said she would be discharged within a week, but she won’t be able to walk as much as she used to walk. She will also need someone to help her run her life. She will need someone to lock the doors, cook her meals and keep her alert. Living in solitude, like what she has done for the past 14 years, will no longer work. Washing laundry, cleaning house and climbing stairs are completely out of the question. Keeping track of her medications and making sure she never runs out, is something mom can no longer handle on her own. Mom needs an assisted living facility.
Are you in this situation?
If you are in your 40s, chances are your parents are in their 70s and not as strong as they used to be. You never know when you can get that phone call informing you that your beloved mother or father is in need of assisted care. You are already running your life, your career and your family. Can you remain happy, grow your career, provide sufficient time for your family and provide the assisted living your mom or dad needs? Probably not. Not enough time in the day.
That’s where an assisted living home can help. Most have staff on duty 24/7, making sure the doors are locked, preparing meals and helping keep residents engaged. You can get back to your life, your career and your family. Let professionals help with your senior parents. Nobody is getting younger.
