What Being A Caregiver Has Taught Me About My Own Aging

June 28, 2018

Nothing gives us insight into our own futures, or galvanizes each of us to consider preparing for the only rainy day we will all get, that is our own old age, should we live that long, like caring for an aging loved one.

While caring for a beloved and aging person is a blessing, one fraught with many mixed emotions, it does bring clarity to what each of us should consider important must-dos before we get to the point of being to frail to do them.

If it’s important to us to stay in our own homes as long as possible, and for most of it is priority one, it’s a good idea to start making the modifications needed now. Getting old is expensive. It’s not too early to seek counsel and start preparing fiscally now. Know now who you want to be near, as you age. If you wish to be near your kids and grandkids and currently are not, think about that now. One good thing, in this age of technological advancements many new ways of assisting seniors are already available, or on the horizon. Make it your business to stay abreast of these options.

Key Takeaways:

  • Care-giving can have its challenging moments but it is an experience that will bring many moments of joy, sadness, frustration and wisdom.
  • Creating an action plan for aging provides one with success when the time comes.
  • If you desire to stay in your own home when you age, adapt your home to suit your aging needs.

“Learning from experience and improving your personal aging experience are worthy goals for family caregivers.”
