 LifeWorks – Taking Care of Aging Loved Ones

LifeWorks – Taking Care of Aging Loved Ones

Article courtesy of LifeWorks

Spending quality time together. Helping to meet emotional, spiritual and physical needs. Assessing assisted living or long-term care facilities. Considering home care. Transporting to and from medical appointments. Managing dementia or chronic illness. Caring for an aging parent, grandparent, or other relative can be a rewarding and meaningful experience as you forge a deeper, more powerful bond, but it can also be demanding and challenging.

The responsibilities can be emotionally and physically draining, and even overwhelming at times, especially if you’re also juggling a career, family
and other personal commitments.

LifeWorks can help! Contact a caring, professional consultant any time, 24 hours a day, seven days a week, for expert support and guidance towards helpful elder care resources. Or, go online to www.lifeworks.com to access educational tools that can help.
