As people get older, they often need help with many daily activities, such as cooking, shopping, cleaning, and doing laundry. In many cases, senior citizens receive help from their adult children, who may visit a few times a week or as often as one or more times per day. Many seniors who want to continue to live in their homes and be independent rely on their children to help take care of them.
Adult children are often happy to help their aging parents, but they might not be around and available whenever they are needed. For example, a child might have to go away on a business trip. He or she could be hospitalized or have another family member who is dealing with a medical issue. In other cases, an adult child might simply want to take a needed and well-deserved vacation.
