What Are We Gonna Do With Mom?

“What are we gonna do with mom?”, was the question, Jessica Whitile asked her husband James on Sunday morning.

“I know,” said Jim, “and the amount of caregiving time is gonna eat up more and more of the quality time we can spend with her.”

What are we gonna do with mom?

That or similar questions are being asked about mom and dad as they get older and begin to lose the flexibilities for activities of daily living called ADLs.
Memory and mobility issues can make even basic needs such as eating, bathing, grooming, and toileting — commonly referred to as “activities of daily living,” or ADLs — difficult. Check-in often and pay attention to specific signs and changes to determine if your loved one needs extra help.

As one Senior Caregiver Specialist said, “Checking on your senior loved one’s health is an important caregiver responsibility. You may need to help keep track of medical appointments, manage medications and chronic conditions, or assess pain levels. It’s a good idea to discuss your loved one’s health with their doctor and other health professionals regularly.”

Caregiving vs Quality Time

As Jessica and Jim were finding out, doing caregiving chores, is taking up more and more time and leaving less and less time to spend quality time with their parents. Mom is in worse shape than Dad and he isn't very far behind as his age increases and both parents want to live in their home for as long as possible. (What is called aging in place).
The challenge the Whitile's have is they both work and have a family of their own. Kids of all ages, from Junior high to college graduates, and with the added difficulty of taking care of mom and dad their days are getting longer and their time is getting shorter. Especially quality time they could spend with their parents instead of having to do all the daily living chores that parents normally do for themselves. 

Solution To Get More Quality Time

One of the best solutions to relieve some of the added stress and free up more time for quality time is engaging a company that specializes in Senior Caregiving to do many of the activities for and with mom and/or dad so that you, like Jessica and Jim, can spend more quality time with your loved ones and still meet their needs.
