I read an online article today on different ways to take care of your elderly family members. It may be difficult to address this sensitive topic, but it is absolutely necessary! (Remember they took care of you once, so the least you can do is educate yourself.) I like the suggestions for helping them stay at home. Most elderly do NOT want to be put in a home. You could consider hiring a professional (website given) for various situations and keep track of them with technology, like QuietCare, which relies on motion detectors. Also discussed in the article are ways to protect their finances and how to keep them socially connected (this is so vital to their well-being).
