SYNERGY HomeCare Birmingham Offers Free Guide on How to Discuss an Aging Mother’s Home Care Needs


Synergy_logoBIRMINGHAM, Ala. (Grassroots Newswire) – While Mother’s Day has passed, worries may still linger if you’re one of the growing number of adult children with an aging mother. Perhaps you couldn’t help but notice that Mom wasn’t quite as sharp as she used to be or how her arthritis makes it difficult for her to navigate up and down stairs. She may even be letting her once-immaculate home get cluttered and gather dust.
According to SYNERGY HomeCare Birmingham, AL, these are just a few of the telltale signs that it’s time to have “The Conversation” about your aging mother’s home care needs. “If you’ve noticed your mother’s difficulties with the routines of daily life, you can rest assured the best time to talk is now, before a crisis forces your family to make decisions on the fly,” said Shellie Waites.
To help you prepare for this awkward conversation every adult child dreads, SYNERGY HomeCare offers a free publication titled “Let’s Talk: A complete guide on how to handle ’The Conversation’ about your aging parents’ home care needs.” The how-to guide includes tips on the best time to broach the subject, and how to break the ice and enlist other family members in the conversation. To get your copy, contact Shellie Waites of your local SYNERGY HomeCare office at 205-987-0555or visit www.synergyhomecare.com.
“It’s an awkward conversation an increasing number of adult children need to prepare for, with the rapid growth in the U.S. aging population,” said Shellie Waites. According to the U.S. Census Bureau, the number of Americans ages 65 and older is projected to be 88.5 million in 2050, more than double the population of 40.2 million in 2010.
Fortunately, in-home care is more affordable than many families might suspect. SYNERGY HomeCare will work with families to tailor an affordable plan that meets their needs, providing the independence and freedom your mom deserves, whether it be for a few hours a week or full-time care. Caregivers can prepare nutritious meals, perform various household tasks, and provide companionship care such as friendly and supportive conversation, light exercise and transportation to doctor’s appointments and social events.
