A few years ago, I realized that my dad needed to move into a care facility instead of living with us. He was always depressed and he needed to be around more people his own age. It was a really difficult decision, but after we moved him into a care facility, he really blossomed. It was great to see him happy, healthy, and enjoying things on his own. This blog is here to help other people to enjoy their own lives and to care for loved ones who need special assistance. I know that with the help of assisted living, everyone can enjoy a better life.

Unfortunately, dementia is not a condition that improves much with age, nor does it improve well overall with medication or treatment. The best thing to do once dementia has been discovered in a parent is to make sure they have the care they need, which can be one-on-one dementia care in their own home or periodic care from a physician or home treatment aide. Your loved one may live with some form of dementia for years before it's either discovered or treated in a major way.

In addition, raising your children, working, and schooling might deter you from actively taking care of your aging parents. So, what do you do? Have you considered enrolling your parents in senior home care services?
