    You’re asked to wear a lot of hats in life: your career hat, your parent hat, your friend hat and now, you might find yourself wearing another hat, one as caregiver for your parent or grandparent.  As a caregiver, you often balance on fine lines, like being available to keep an eye on your father in case he takes another fall, but giving him the privacy that he wants in his own home. Showing compassion and respect to your mother with memory loss, but making sure she’s eating, even if she doesn’t want to.

     

    Chances are, you’ve asked yourself things like:

    “How much longer can my mother live at home?”
    “What happens if dad takes a fall in between my daily visits?”
    “My mother can’t get out and do the things she used to do. Is she lonely?”


     We understand that these are things you worry about, and we want to help. Our Assisted Living and Memory Support services offer peace of mind for you and your family, and exceptional care for the people you love most.
