I wish my parents are here with me, but they live half-way around the world. Why I wish they’re here? Because I want to personally take care of them especially so now that they’re both in their 70′s. And more so now that my Mom just suffered from a stroke and is now wheelchair-bound. I grow up in a tradition and culture wherein we are the ones who will take care of our elderly parents. Since I am not there. I am very grateful that my sisters take turns taking care of them.
I worked before in a nursing home when I was in Georgia, and this past April I worked for a short period in a home care setting. Both my experiences really thought me how to take care of our elderly, not just by assisting and doing things that they need, but most especially make them as comfortable as possible. I read lots of articles in ParentGiving.com about different issues about elderly care and found out very valuable information. This is a one-stop resource for choosing an in-home care agency that you need if you have elderly and different ways on how to take care of the elderly properly. They listed different agencies all over the US, so wherever you are you can access to this information and get specific answer to your questions.
Before my Mom asked me if when they can come over here in the US if I will put them in a home care facility or nursing home. I told them I would love them to stay in our own house where I can be there for them. I want to give something back to them as my parents for being there for me no matter what. But this won’t be possible now as I don’t think they still want to be here since they both have medical issues.
