Embracing change and accepting help

Now that I have personally punched my one-way ticket to Geezerville, I find my empathy towards my fellow seniors growing ever more so. Getting your Medicare card is one of the surest signs time really does carry us on with or without our assent.

Transitions, even the best ones in the best of times, are stressful and disorienting. Our ability to adapt slows while the world continues to accelerate. Recognizing this is a very important step in easing the transition to needing and accepting more help from others.

The collective wisdom of our experienced caregivers means that, like the insurance commercial, “They know a thing or two, because they’ve seen a thing or two.” This is invaluable assistance that they can provide for those of us who are, for the first time, facing a debilitated parent. Our caregivers have worked with families in some of the most difficult periods in the life of any family. Here at Care and Comfort at Home for Seniors and Veterans, we firmly believe in the importance of embracing and addressing the needs of the entire family.
