Authenticity– The truth of a parent needing an in-home caregiver is very important to stress in the course of the conversation. Parents should be reminded that the children work full-time professions, have children to care for or everything else that raises caregiver stress levels. Stress results in bad communication skills and ultimately annoyance and bitterness over having to handle the extra job of caring for an elderly parent. When children take on the duty of caring for an ill parent, the rapport often suffers greatly because of the stress related trouble.
Concerns- Be open and genuine with the elderly parent when he or she has fears. The fears might seem like complaints or excuses, but they are real fears that the parent is feeling and should be addressed swiftly. Two of the main concerns the parent might have are cost and having someone in the home who is a stranger. Do not make claims that cannot be kept, but give advice gained by talking to a expert about it.
Adult children who are looking after of their elderly parents figure out early on that it is a daunting undertaking at best. There are duties involved in caring for an elderly parent that are tricky to handle. Children and parents should benefit each other when they can. There is a time to realize that an in-home caregiver is the best answer. Be prepared to take on the extra cost if the elderly parent cannot tackle the cost themselves. Some insurance companies will cover the cost in certain circumstances. Otherwise, arrangements have to be made financially if an in-home caregiver is the only resolution.

Home to Stay Senior Care Solutions is owned and operated by the Dubler and Skole Families and was started because of experiences they had with their own Families. In one situation Mom was living alone and had a fall. It was not until this fall that the family realized they were unprepared.
When it was time for their Mom to come home, she needed companion and personal care to assist her and prevent another accident. Like most people in this situation, they were confused and did not know where to go for help. It was this life-changing experience that lead to starting a home care company that is focused on enabling those who wish to stay at home and age in place.
