With an elderly parent it can be hard to know where to begin, especially when the stakes are high and time is short. That said, there are many sources of information and advice available for seniors and their families in Greater Boston.
Words to the Wise
Get help from the start – from family, friends, and professionals. Resist the impulse to do it all yourself.
Never rely on a single source of information or advice when making eldercare decisions.
Expect at least one false start. Don’t rush to fix the problem.
Listen to the experts, but trust your own judgment.
Take control by writing everything down, prioritizing, and delegating just as you would in your professional life.
Be present in the moment. Make time to “do nothing”.
