Forty percent of adults are looking after an aging loved one. It could be any relative or even a neighbor, but it’s usually a parent.
“I see a lot of stressed out 40- to 60-year-olds who are trying to manage a career, kids and their parents,” said Kim DeRoche, MD of Fairview. “I hear about it when a woman comes in for her ‘annual’ physical and hasn’t been in for three or four years. They know they’re not taking care of themselves the way they did before they had to take care of someone else.”
It’s especially challenging with seniors living longer these days and expecting to stay in their own homes longer. Someone has to step up to help with the things they can’t do for themselves.
Do Any of These Sound Like Your Life?
This can be a scary time, but you’re not alone. If you need help caring for your loved one, it may be time to consider a memory care center.
