This caregiving role can be tough on its own. But when you add your career and financial concerns to the mix, it can feel like you’re barely keeping your head above water.

When do you know it’s the right time to get more help for aging parents?
“There are a lot of factors you should consider. It may be time if your parent is feeling any one of these symptoms of being isolated and showing the physical and/or emotional signs of depression (e.g., not eating properly, not taking medication, becoming forgetful).
If they’re still living in the family home, they may have a hard time walking up and down the stairs safely. Not to mention keeping up with house keeping, laundry, lawn maintenance, etc.
Many people also experience a decline in their memory caused by depression or underlying dementia. In fact that makes it more difficult to continue living independently. Further, an environment with nurses/doctors may be needed for those with more acute physical needs or a recent diagnosis.”
