Taking Care of Aging Loved Ones

Family time can often bring joy and lasting memories, but it may also bring forthquestions regarding the well being of aging loved ones and the need for additional assistance.

Did grandma seem more confused or need extra help with daily activities?  Or perhaps Uncle Charlie had lost a lot of weight and wasn't eating very much. 

Although talking about one's changing health concerns might not have seemed appropriate at the time, it's even more important now to have those difficult conversations to keep them in their own home. Especially now that your back to a daily routine, it is important to take a closer look at our loved one's care and self-reliance. 

The good thing is that there are services available that can help. At Cedar Valley Hospice, our LINK Palliative Care and hospice programs offer additional care and support from a team of experts. These programs allow seniors to remain in their own surroundings, maintain control of their health plan and increase their quality of life.
