Nearly 10 million people over the age of 50 are caring for their aging parents, according to a recent article. Many people who make the decision to move an elderly parent or relative into their home aren’t ready. This decision often happens quickly or unexpectedly, so it’s understandable that certain things, like modifying a bathroom, are not top of mind. It is inevitable, however, that home and lifestyle modifications will, and should, happen.
If you have a senior living with you, providing comfort and support is a full-time commitment. So, it’s imperative that you remove any roadblocks that may cause added stress. Follow these in-home elderly care tips to help this new season of your life go smoothly.
