The Sandwich Generation
If you’re caught between trying to support your children and caring for an elderly parent, welcome to the “Sandwich Generation.” Nearly 10 million (1 in 7) adults between the ages of 40 and 59 fall into this personal and financial pressure point that can be amplified by mounting layoffs, the recession and college expenses. Add such stressful challenges as balancing career, marriage, and finding time for oneself…and life is quickly complicated when caring for an elderly parent is part of the equation. If parents live a long distance away, the stress and guilt can be even greater.
Quality In Home Care Support
The demands of providing quality care to an aging parent while raising children do not have to be overwhelming. Reliable, superior home support services allow older adults to live in the comfort of their own home, rather than moving into an assisted living facility. Home care specialists offer peace-of-mind by handling various necessities, be they performing relatively minor tasks like grooming or providing live-in senior home care that requires more extensive assistance. Services can be flexibly tailored to meet your budget, schedule and a parent’s health situation. Knowing that someone is always nearby to help makes all the difference.
Home Care Assistance gives family caregivers in the Fort Worth area a real break by providing expert care and concern in a familiar setting, without sacrificing the dignity and independence that loved ones cherish. Options include solutions for those who cannot adequately care for themselves any longer, including dedicated caregivers who can provide hourly care or live-in home care, dementia care, cancer care, post-hospital home care, rehab to home care or Alzheimer’s home care. For those caregivers in the Sandwich Generation who have found their time and money sliced considerably, a service like Home Care Assistance is a breath of fresh air.
