With age, you reach a point in your life where you are too fragile to survive on your own. You become dependent on other people. Your children and their families might be too busy to have the time for you. At this point, you will have to seek aged care services from companies like Simply Helping. Aged care is defined as a designated facility which provides support and accommodation to promote comfortable living and assistance to people who are elderly and frail.
My pop has done so many incredible things in his life. He fought in Vietnam and saved his best friend from dying by carrying him through the jungle for two days. After Grandma died though he seemed really lost. Not only did he lose the person who made sure he took all of his medicines and ate his dinner, but when Grandma went he also lost his best friend. I can't be there to help him all the time so I have organised a carer to stop in and make sure that he is eating his meals and keeping his spirits up. This blog is about the challenges of caring for an elderly loved one when you can't be there yourself.
