Questions To Ask Before Becoming Your Parents Caregiver:
Posted Mar 24 2010 8:32am
What are the personal sacrifices I will have to make in order to properly look after my parent?
What are the sacrifices my spouse and children will have to make in order for me to look after my parent?
Will there be financial burden?
Will my employer notice and object to my devoting time each day to my parent’s welfare?
Will too much time away from work cost me my job?
How much do I know about care giving?
Do I have the time to do this properly?
Will I be able to do enough, or will I always feel professional caregivers would have done a better job?
Will I be offended or become resentful if my care giving efforts are taken for granted?
Is there any way in which my being my parent’s caregiver could damage my relationship with that person?
Will my spouse and/or children object to my devoting time each day to my parent’s welfare?
Will my parent accept me as their homemaker/caregiver? Is this what they want?
Can I integrate some professional care along with my own services to allow myself a break now and again?
