I am confused

My grand mother is 87 years old, She is physical disabled. My mother is taking care of her till now. She has not good from few days. We are looking for elder care home. Some of my frineds suggested about palm cottages, are senior assisted living facilities. I also personally investigated about this company, offers very good services tp its residents. On other hand, our relatives are saying that we should hire a caregiver for her. I am very confused. I don't know which is best for her. Kindly help me to choose.

Hi, Robin, 

I take care of a 70 year (advanced) Parkinson's patient and he's been looking into care homes, too. We used A Place For Mom and found them helpful. Free service and they give you a single contact to co-ordinate visits.  That's my experience. 


My guy stayed in an assisted living facilicty for six months, then came home and has been back about a year. He worked with physical therapists there and learned many coping techniques.  We're doing well, but his behaviour has become erratic.


I'm a caregiver myself, so my view is slanted toward independent living as long as possible. 


I just joined the board, and this is the first traffic I've seen. 

Patience is key.


Thanks for your suggestion Khampelf. I will go for independent living as you suggested. smiley

Hi. I know how hard it is to

Hi. I know how hard it is to take care of a disabled person. I think it is better to opt for a caregiver. If you prefer an elder care home, she might not feel happy or comfortable. As elder people always don't like changes. They like to follow what they have been following all these years. She may feel lonely. It is just a suggestion

Honestly thank you so much

Time in the kitchen

You don't have faith in your abilities to cook. Because your parents or sisters cook a lot, you don't spend a lot of time in the kitchen. Never give up on mastering this self-sufficient ability. You should start learning to cook immediately. Engaging in culinary games such as papa's pizzeria might aid in piqueing your curiosity. I used to be a sloth and often ate meals out. Then, since I often eat unhealthy meals, my stomach has had certain problems. I've since made the decision that I ought to cook for myself. It helps me save money and is beneficial to my health.
