So when do you typically discover that your parent is not cutting it? After how many falls? A dislocated shoulder or broken hip? Confusion because of dehydration or skipping or doubling up on medicine? How many trips to the doctor or hospital? What about just not seeing it or not wanting to believe it? Denial, avoidance and guilt can interfere with reality. Facing the fact that your parent(s) are aging and perhaps their safety is at issue and even more evident, that their quality of life is suffering or not what it should be or can be is difficult. This is a critical component of making the right decision for relativies!
That is why experience is important, not only in helping with that decision to determine the right fit, but also in the experience required to provide appropriate care once that move is made.
