Finding Time to Care for Your Aging Parents
Many adults find themselves forced into the role of caring for their aging parents or loved ones. Even in the closest family relationships, adult children can struggle to find the time to provide the necessary care their elderly parents need. Whether because of your own children, your job, frequent travel, or other responsibilities, finding the time to care for your aging parents can be difficult.
Sometimes, the need for elder care comes without warning – perhaps initiated by a stroke or heart attack. In other cases, the shift happens gradually, leaving a trail of signs along the way. Whether you were mentally, emotionally, and financially prepared or not, when the need to care for an elderly parent comes along, children feel compelled to answer the call.
When your schedule leaves little room for additional activities, how do you find the time? Many adults consider quitting their jobs to care for their loved ones, but few people have the luxury of affording to lose their income.
