As they reach retirement, many Canadians begin searching for new opportunities to live purposeful and happy lives. Whether that means taking up a new hobby, connecting with social groups and organizations, or simplifying their daily lives, many individuals relish the increased freedom and opportunity.
“Every day, about 28% of Canadians provide care for a family member, friend or neighbour, and nearly half will do so at some point (cmaj.ca).” Caring for someone you love is an act of compassion and dedication, but it can also be a huge undertaking.
It can be an emotional realization when you determine that an aging family member can no longer live alone and may need extra assistance. Many people try to avoid this realization for as long as possible, believing that transitioning into a senior living community could be detrimental to the well-being of their loved one. However, the truth is that senior care and assisted living communities are supportive and positive environments and are often the best place for your loved one to be.
Finding the right level of care and type of retirement living that is best for your parent or loved one is a process that requires time and research. One significant thing to consider is if they would benefit more from in-home care versus a senior living community.
As we grow, our opinions and views are shaped by our life experiences. Different generations can have different perspectives, and family conflicts can often arise. While these disagreements can be minor, they can cause further issues when caring for aging parents.
