Taking Care of a Difficult Aging Parent: How Much Longer Will You Carry the Guilt?

June 4, 2018

If you can relate, then you know what I’m talking about.  The parent who has never been there for you now expects you to take care of her; you’ve already spent thousands of dollars on therapy trying to heal from the past, but the time has now come when she needs your help.  As a good son or daughter, you take on the role of a live-in caregiver despite what’s happened in the past, but instead of getting sweeter, your parent’s personality gets worse, and she constantly gives you guilt trips no matter how hard you try to take care of her.

Two Birds in One Stone: The In-Home Care Solution

Fulfilling your filial obligation makes you the good son/daughter that you are, and you can accomplish this while preserving boundaries around your mental health.  A-1 Home Care in Calabasas provides 24-hour care for seniors in the comfort of their own homes, which means that if you want to move out or move your parents into a place of their own, you can still manage to take care of their needs from a distance.  Live-in care entails the following:

  • Assistance with cooking, cleaning and laundry
  • Transportation anywhere in Calabasas or beyond for medical, dental and optical appointments
  • 24 hour companion care

Our trusted caregivers have won the hearts of the elderly and their families for many years, which make us the preferred home care agency in LA County.  Even the most difficult personality will melt in the presence of unconditional sweetness.  More often than not, family members are more cordial with outsiders than their own relatives.  There is no relationship history or trigger buttons to push, and nothing fazes our seasoned caregivers, who have years of experience under their belts.
