Maybe you’re helping your parents deal with a health challenge, possibly they’re having difficulty dealing with some of the activities of daily life, maybe the chores around their home are getting too difficult for them, or they have fewer friends to enjoy life with.
Of course, you can’t help worrying about their future. You want to ensure their security and comfort for a long and happy life, a Sterling Life. Even if you’re helping, caring for a parent is a difficult job. Research shows that one in three adult children consider themselves caregivers, yet most find it difficult to begin a conversation about their parents’ living and health needs.
Now is the time to have the conversation, while your parents or loved one is healthy enough to enjoy all the benefits of living at a Sterling Estates Senior Living Community. Our philosophy is designed to help your parents get more out of life: more friendship and new pursuits, more comfort and spiritual fulfillment. You want the security of knowing your parents will be secure, happy, hopeful, and receive any needed assistance, with the compassion and respect they’ve earned and deserve.
Expect your parents to say, “I’m not ready yet.”
Too often, people miss out on the fun of retirement living because they wait until they’re facing a medical problem. The time to begin the conversation is now.
Almost everyone’s first choice is to stay at home as long as possible. If your parents continue living in their home, you may need to hire a personal care assistant to help with bathing, shopping or laundry. We lift that burden from you while giving your parent an opportunity to enjoy a more fulfilling life.
