I have a bit of a fever and I have been feeling sick for a few days now. But I am trying to not let it slow me down. I am a parent of three and that wears me out, even if I am not feeling under the weather. Right now, my concerns are mostly with my parents though. It occurs to me that they are really quite elderly, and I think that hiring senior home care in Queens would be the best thing for them.
I recently went over to their house and had a discussion with them about moving into a retirement community. They were so outraged by the suggestion that I thought they might disown me. Of course, they didn’t, but I know that I am not going to be able to convince them to move out of their home. Since that is not an option, I want to look at an option where I can bring some sort of care to their house, in terms of medical and other needs.
My father in particular is not in very good health. He has a bad ticker, and he is still recovering from a fairly major heart surgery that he had a few months back. It scared us all greatly when he had to go through that procedure, but I am glad that it looks like he is going to make a full recovery. It doesn’t mean that he is not at risk for future incidents though, and that is a strong reason why I want to get them some sort of home care. I am not sure that they will welcome the idea, but I am going to do my best to not give them much of a choice in the matter. So I need to see how much it will cost.
