Elderly Parent Carefinder

If you find yourself in the position of becoming an elderly parent carefinder for your mom or dad, then one of the things you need to be aware of is the tendency to be seen as ‘taking over’ and over-stepping your role.  They say the road to hell is paved with good intentions, and there is nothing more fraught with difficulty than trying to help and elderly parent – – except actually becoming their caregiver.

San Diego Caregivers

Before you make a phone call to one of the many San Diego caregivers, decide what home-care skills your elder requires and what specific tasks have to be performed.  Write the required skills and tasks down.  You can use this to then clearly communicate your aging senior’s specific needs to a caregiver.

For example, you may want someone skilled in managing the difficult behavior of a confused older adult or providing range-of-motion exercises to a stroke victim, or managing incontinence.  Tasks may include lifting, bathing, or even driving to medical appointments.
