My parents have both had a variety of health issues over the past few years. While they don’t necessarily require around the clock care, they do need assistance here and there throughout the day and night.
We’ve tried to use home care agencies and it just doesn’t work well. The primary problem is we can’t afford for them to be in my parents’ home all of the time. The intermittent nature of their needs (i.e. using the bathroom in the middle of the night) is such a struggle for us to manage. My wife, my sister and I are running back and forth to their home several times a day. All three of us work full time and it’s beginning to impact our jobs.
This weekend we decided we need to talk with mom and dad about moving to an assisted living community somewhere here in Fort Worth . We would sure appreciate a few “talking points” that might help us convince them of the benefits of making such a move.
