It is no wonder eldercare consulting and geriatric care management became a specialized field on its own. The decisions to be made in managing our parents’ care can be complex.
COVID-19 adds a new dimension to our concerns. We are finding retirement communities are more likely to become hotspots. However, the amount of risk depends on the facility and the safety precautions they have put in place.
Across the world, adult children are asking, “Is it better to leave my parent at a facility or move them home?” Eldercare Specialists can assess your situation from an independent, professional viewpoint, and help you reach the right decision—a decision that takes into account all of the stakeholders’ needs. We know there is no one-size-fits-all solution.
How to decide if you should shelter your parents at home
Our aging parents may resist moving after they have been settled in a community. After all, it has become their home where their friends are and they are adjusted to the routine. Here are questions to consider.
Does it make sense to move my parents to my home?
We are here for you. If you need more advice, please call us. We have parents ourselves and we understand what you are going through. Eldercare Specialists can help you objectively assess your situation so you can make the best decision, develop a plan, and find the resources you need to ensure your parents have the best care—whether in your home or in a facility.
