Well, as our loved ones get older, this still rings true. ey want to stay in the comfort of their own home and they want their in- dependence! Even for the most able retiree, there comes a time when help is needed with the basics of day-to-day living. More often than not, this help comes from family members who live close by and can assist when they can. Despite this support, realistically, there is a limit to how much time a family can commit, especially as the needs of a loved one increase. Sometimes we reach this point without warning, in the case of a sudden health issue or a spouse passing away. Other times it happens slowly and over time we start to notice the small things Mum and Dad are struggling with. Maybe the gardens are getting overgrown, when once they were immaculate. Household chores like cleaning are being overlooked. Or Mum and Dad are not cooking proper meals like they used to and in some cases they re skipping meals all together. Physically your loved ones may also be finding it harder to get around, especially if they have stairs or slopes to negotiate. For a person at this stage of life there are various options.
