Caring for Elderly Parents is A Juggling Act - But We Can Help

Caring for Elderly Parents

Care for Elderly Parents – It’s a Juggling Act

Care for elderly parents isn’t easy. In the midst of trying to raise your own family, now you need to consider how to take care of elderly mom or dad too.

Maybe you’ve noticed some problems – indications that age is taking its toll. One or both of your parents even may suffer with chronic disease like diabetes or memory loss. So they need more than just an occasional phone call. And they certainly won’t hear of going to an “old folks home.”

You are part of a growing number of adult children taking care of elderly parents. So what are you going to do?

Home Care for Elderly Parents Tailored to Your Needs

Elderly Care is a Big Job

From a little help for your older parents when you can’t be there to a fully managed program of care if you live in another state – we can handle it all.

A bit of help with housework, shopping or personal care may be all your aging parent needs to remain independent. Or perhaps your parents face health issues but would still prefer to stay in their home if a caregiver can help to meet their needs.

Sunlife can provide reminders to take medications, help with every day chores, or just provide companionship to help ward off loneliness and depression.

For example, home care for elderly parents might include:
• Dressing, bathing, everyday grooming like shaving or just getting hair combed
• Getting in and out of bed and chairs, getting to and from the bathroom
• Food preparation and cleanup
• Help with housework
• Transportation help – to appointments, meetings, social activities or the grocery store
• Shopping – for groceries, or picking up prescriptions, or even an outing to the mall.
