If you have recently found yourself in the position of caring for an aging parent, relative, friend, or neighbor, you have embarked upon a journey that is unlike any other. Caring for an aging adult can be challenging, but with the right tools and resources, it can prove to be one of the most rewarding experiences of your life.
Life's little challenges can seem a bit easier when there is someone by your side. This is especially true for the older adult, who may experience a range of emotions associated with a lifestyle change. For some men and women, this transition can be particularly difficult.
This reinforces the need for an active support network. We strongly encourage family members and friends to be involved in their loved ones' lives. Ongoing participation through visitations, telephone calls, and written correspondence help them feel more connected and can significantly enhance their quality of life.
