When is it time to bring in some help?

Posted on July 14, 2012 at 1:34 PM
I’ve been speaking with a family for about four months now about the possibility of adding non-medical services which would allow Mom and Dad to stay in their much beloved home. Everyone agrees that this is a necessary step however, no one is willing to make that final decision.

In the meantime, tensions are rising. Mom and Dad are blue, stating “we’re waiting for this final passage in our lives.” This could and should be a time to enjoy a round of golf, or two and more with some planning.

It saddens me to see seniors facing each new day with such a bleak point of view. Yes, it’s true, time is short, so, let’s make the most of it. How about focusing on maximizing each day with vim & vigor? Let’s laugh until our sides hurt! Let’s plan that game of golf, the lunch with friends, or a day of antiquing.

The bottom line...don’t hesitate to ask for help when each day is a burden, when chores seem overwhelming, when the spark in life has gone out.  Better yet, be proactive. Seek out a non-medical professional whom you trust and whose company you enjoy. Then jump in with both feet and hire that person to come over for an hour or two and you help garden, or with other chores. Ideally, start building that relationship early on. Think of this as an investment in a positive, bright future for yourself and for your entire family.

Here’s to a making the most of each day,
Jane
