When the time comes to ‘parent’ the parent
By Linnea Jessup Correspondent
It’s a decision no Baby Boomer wants to make, but as their parents begin to age, it often becomes the responsibility of the adult child to ‘parent’ the parent.
Suddenly, a parent or other older adult becomes ill, takes a fall, gets more and more forgetful or has a medical condition or event that requires hospitalization. After hospital care stabilizes the older adult, the family may be faced with a wave of decisions. If the senior is unable to return home to independent living, where should they live? Or, what care services will need to be brought into their home so that they can continue to live independently?
“With seemingly no warning, the family learns that the parent being released from the hospital will need help with bathing, part-time nursing or physical therapy,” said Angela Di Nicola, owner of HomeLife Senior Care in East County. “Sometimes, the family learns that they need 24/7 care for a loved one. It can happen so quickly, and families are often unprepared to step up. They are blindsided.”
Fortunately, options are available, ranging from in-home care to a move to a fulltime care facility.
“Don’t feel guilty about getting care from an outside source,” advised Di Nicola. “Often, husbands don’t understand how much care their wife needs and vice versa. That’s when it’s time for a health care professional to come in and advise the family of their options.”
For in-home care, there are also levels of service that can be provided.
“Consider their physical, mental and emotional well-being,” said Di Nicola. “Do they need temporary care for just a week or two, or do they need on-going physical therapy or other services? Do they need a bath chair or other appliances, such as a cane with multiple feet on the bottom to assure more stability?”
Chris Marchetti of A Better Choice, in Brentwood, also offers senior care and can outline the variety of options available for seniors. Among her company’s goals are to provide a specific caregiver for each client so that the older adult and the caregiver can be matched for a good fit, and the older adult can build a bond with the caregiver. A caregiver might help the person with bathing and dressing or ensure medications are taken on schedule.
A good first step is to have an assessment made of the older adult by a registered nurse or a social worker, who can meet with the patient and recommend services based on the evaluation and desires of the senior and their family.
There are many levels of care and support available to seniors, according to Marla Luckhardt, who is affiliated with the Visiting Angels in Brentwood.
Luckhardt, a devoted volunteer for a variety of senior organizations, frequently talks to the adult children of seniors who are struggling to find the proper level of care and service for their loved one.
The staff of Visiting Angels, who provide in-home care for seniors, “are definitely angels,” said Luckhardt. “At some point, we’ll all need the dignity and the respect that seniors deserve. I get calls every week from people looking for help for their parents and it’s a joy to help them.”
When planning the future of a loved one, be sure to involve them in the decision-making process as much as possible, said Luckhardt.
“Evaluate more than one care facility or program, and make them a part of the process. Make sure that wherever they go, you are an advocate for them. Be there, spend time with them; don’t simply rely on others to do all the care.”
The level of care can vary from group setting to group setting. A larger operation may have a variety of living and care arrangements for a wide range of seniors with specific needs, but all experts agree that doing research and building a network of care sources to help your person enjoy an optimum quality of life, will allow you to live a better life too.
