Senior Resources

by michellerogers on November 14, 2009

At the end of the day on Friday I picked up a message from a business owner whom I had spoken with about her Mom and Dad 2 weeks ago.  She was frustrated because Dad had become increasingly agitated and somewhat abusive.  Her mom was tired and feeling as though she had no opportunity to get out of the house.

During the conversation she asked me lots of great questions and I made some suggestions to her that would stimulate and engage her father plus present an opportunity to enable her mom to leave the house so she could get her time and take care of her needs.  We also sent some information to my caller.  So when I listened to the message I was ecstatic to hear her excitement in her voice.  She had identified a woman to come in and work with her parents on a project.  Additionally she mentioned she was having conversations with them on those tough subjects we all tend to ignore, those last stages of care for our seniors.  Mom and Dad were receptive and engaging with the dialogue. 

She was grateful for having spent the time on the phone and ideas that were presented to her.  It was the perfect way to end the day knowing someone is navigating through options for their family members and finding the right solution for their situation.
