Parents Taking Care Of Parents

CaptureAs we all know, family is so important.  That’s why we really need to reinforce how important it truly is to take care of your family.  When I had a baby, it was probably one of the most stressful times in my life.  However, I’ve found that throughout the years, the most stressful time might possibly be when I have kids to take care of and parents to take care of.  My dad passed away when I was quite young, and I remember it being a very difficult time in my mother’s life.  Now, being a young parents of two kids under the age of 5, having my mother get sick is just creating so much unwanted stress on my family.  Yes, my husband is great and takes care of our kids and my mother all the time, and I’m so thankful for that.  But having to juggle kids, work, and parents is sometimes just a little bit too much.

My friend eventually told me of a service that care for seniors right at your home.  This means that I can leave the house, drop my kids off at preschool, and go to work without having to worry about if my mom is doing okay home alone.  Basically, this service provides home care for your loved ones and they’re able to stay with them at home while you’re away.  This definitely helps my life a lot because it’s not so much the taking care of my mother that stresses me out, it’s more the worry of leaving her at home by herself.

I’m so grateful for services like these because without it, I don’t know if I would be able to adjust my life properly and still be able to do everything I do.  My family is very thankful for our caretaker.  She’s amazing and extremely professional.  My mother sure likes her a lot too as well as the kids.  It’s definitely one of the best agencies for at home care in our region.  I no longer have to rush home from work or not be able to take my kids to their swimming lessons at night.  I’m able to cook dinner for my family and spend more time with my kids, husband, and mother.  It’s so great to be able to count on someone and them have your back.
