Many senior citizens need help with daily activities such as bathing, dressing, cooking, cleaning, and laundry as they get older. Family members often step in to provide assistance. This can relieve the burden on senior citizens so they can stay at home.
Reasons Why You Might No Longer Be Able to Help Your Parents
If you have been caring for your elderly parents, you may not be able to continue to do so forever. Your circumstances could change. You might get married or have a child and need to devote more of your time and energy to your new family. You might get a job in a new city and need to move. It might not be possible to have your parents live with you, or they might want to stay where they are.
How a Caregiver Can Help Your Family
If you are no longer able to take care of your parents because your circumstances have changed, you can hire a caregiver to provide assistance in your parents’ home. A caregiver can visit for a few hours once a week or for several hours every day. If your parents need around-the-clock care, that can be arranged as well.
