Sherman Oaks Home Care: Create Psychological Distance without Guilt

a-1 home care downey elderlyThere comes a time when 24 hour elder care needs to be considered because your elderly parent’s frailty is becoming more evident.  It’s only natural to want to help, but if you’ve had a rocky history with your mom and dad, the idea of moving your parent in with you – or vice versa – sounds more objectionable than palatable.  And if you’re thinking of moving your elderly parent in out of guilt or persistent pursuit of their approval, then those are red flags that will cause more harm than harmony in the home.  Before anyone moves in with the other, consider creating psychological distance between yourself and your parent(s) by hiring a responsible, highly skilled and experienced live-in caregiver from A-1 Home Care in Sherman Oaks.  By bringing in a personable, certified caregiver, you are killing two birds with one stone – fulfilling your filial duties and maintaining that safe, psychological distance to minimize relationship strains.

You can coordinate live-out caregiver visits with A-1 Home Care’s managers if your elderly parent is resistant to having a caregiver at first.  Our terrific team of caregivers will win your parent’s heart and provide excellent companionship while your parents are still well.  Because we are licensed, bonded and insured, you won’t have to worry about questionable characters scheming to win your parents’ trust and then stealing their lifetime savings for their own gain.  Every caregiver, certified home health aide, certified nurse aide, licensed vocational nurse and in-home care worker is thoroughly screened through criminal background checks, DMV checks, and professional reference verification.  If you live far from Sherman Oaks, our in- home caregivers will serve as a liaison between you and your loved ones, and this will prove especially helpful if you are not planning to live in the same vicinity as your elderly parents.
