As Father’s Day approaches do you find your aging father relying on you whenever problems arise? Are you currently caring for him as his health declines? Does it take more time than you have, require knowledge of the medical system and health insurance coverage that you do not have or entail tasks that make you feel uncomfortable?
Eventually you may realize that caring for your aging parent can be frustrating and lead to caregiver burn out. It can also lead to dissension with siblings particularly if several live far away and you are the local son or daughter.
Where can you turn for help? Geriatric Care Managers help families manage the care of their loved ones. We are nursing consultants knowledgeable about resources, care options, care needs, and outcomes. If you feel confused, overwhelmed or conflicted about the care needs of your father please give us a call.
