Relationships between parents and children often become strained when children become the primary caregiver. It can be stressful for adult children to be responsible for their parent’s health. Conversely, parents can often feel ashamed when they require their children’s assistance for daily living tasks.
When children take over the role of primary caregivers to their parents, it can be a difficult position for everyone to be in. It is hard on the parents because they feel their independence has been taken away from them, and they are ashamed that they cannot do even the simplest of tasks for themselves. For children, taking on this role can strain the relationship as they feel the very real weight of responsibility in taking care of their loved ones.
By choosing to place a parent in a nursing home or assisted living situation, there is a great burden lifted on both sides. Parents and children are both free to resume their prior roles and spend time together doing things that they both enjoy.
The fear of losing independence can be a very real issue for many elderly adults when considering their future living options. When choosing to live in a nursing home or an assisted living facility, many individuals find that they actually are able to maintain and even expand upon their current independence. This is possible as many facilities offer engaging activities as well as very simple, convenient methods for getting around the area.
Social interaction and opportunities to be out and about in the community can help sharpen the mind and keep the body healthier longer. Adults that are isolated in their home often feel lonely or desire more social interaction.
When elderly family members are left at home for long periods of time, this can be cause for concern both for their social and mental health. By staying engaged socially through an assisted living facility, many elderly adults are able to maintain their mental and physical health for longer as well as create and maintain friendships with other residents.
