My parents need some sort of home care. I have pleaded with them to move out of their house and to move into a senior living community, or something similar to that. But they do not want to do it, and I do not think that I can force them to do it. I still need to do something, and I am going to check into senior home care in Nassau County because I have to do something to make sure that their health is in good hands.
Neither of them is in the best of health, and I do not want to get into all of their medical problems at the moment. If I did do so, then it would just make me feel worse about things and I tend to get depressed easily when I think about that. But I know that I need to get something done, and that they need an at home care option, if they are going to refuse to move into a retirement community.
I wish that I had been able to convince them to move out of their house. My father seems to think that a retirement community, or whatever you want to call them is a place where seniors go to die. That is a pretty bleak view of it, but I guess he might have a point. I am checking out other options, but at the moment, I think that the home care idea is the best thing that I have in mind. If I could, I would just quit my job, and take care of them myself. But I have too many financial issues to think about that. Plus, I have a good job, and really that is just a silly thought. But I wish I could be there for them myself.
