Caring for Aging Parents
Caring for elderly parents, whether at home (yours or theirs), or long distance? Here you’ll find tips, resources, and more to help you on this difficult yet rewarding journey. I’ve been caring for various elderly relatives for years, including dealing with caring for elderly parents with dementia symptoms, Parkinson’s Disease, diabetes, COPD, and more. I love to research to help my beloveds and to help my readers. We’ll even talk about aging in place ideas – to make their home, or yours, safer for aging parents.
P.S. Here are two of my top recommendations for all of our elderly parents!
A simple cell phone elderly parents can actually use – including the option to dial 0 and have the operator dial the number for them! My senior mom has used the Jitterbug for years and loves it. We’ve recommended it online AND off to all!
A senior medical alert device like a pendant to wear around their neck that notifies the 24/7 operator that they need help. I especially recommend one that offers fall alerts!
