Senior Care Jacksonville | When Is It Time

Some Jacksonville seniors are simply past the point of caring for themselves.  When it becomes time to change into caregiver mode, it is not easy for adult children.  Senior care in Jacksonville is a viable option in a senior care plan that adult children can use as a means to keep a part of them just the child of an elder.  Shifting your thinking is difficult.  When you have been listening to your senior aged loved one for all of your life and the time comes that your word, ideas thoughts or opinions may actually be more valid and makes more sense it is scary sometimes.  At thirty years old I just started to ‘push back’ or disagree with my Grandmother.  It was not easy.  I have always been her little helper and she was one of the disciplinarians in my life.  She started to make clouded decisions and not thinking through the decisions she was making to the end result and I knew that it was time to switch from Granddaughter/ Grandmother mode to caregiver and concerned adult mode.  She and my Grandfather have enjoyed so many years together just mainly caring for each other and only listening to the opinion of the other.  Now, it is up to the family to ensure that they are making the best decisions.  Senior care is necessary to ensure their safety and well-being.  Seniors just most of the time do not realize the changes in their thinking, mental capacity, physical health and medical condition.  They will feel as if things should remain the same as they always had been.  I on the other hand, knew that although it would be difficult ‘telling them what to do’ would now be necessary.
