Houston Geriatric Care Services
Houston Advocate Senior Legal Center provides resources for elderly geriatric care services and programs. Many children of aging parents never thought that they would be assisting their parents as they age.
A Geriatric Care Manager can help families by providing education, support, insight, and links to reputable, high-quality services and resources for seniors. Please note, each Senior will have their one unique issue. We have been helping caregivers in Houston and state of Texas for over two decades. Please contact our office for a needs assessment.
You should prepare yourself and your family for the undertaking.
Remember that you are at a different stage in life than your parent.
Try to look at their concerns from their perspective. Respect their desire for control and regularity.
Try to help your parent maintain the highest level of independence for as long as possible. The level of independence you start with will depend on the unique situation of your family.
Have a management plan for the essentials like money management; bills; health plans; and any necessary equipment or modifications.
Most importantly, help your parent maintain as good of health as possible. No one will live forever, but there are things we can do to help maintain our health as long as possible.
For assistance with how to deal with an aging parent, I recommend speaking with a Geriatric Care Manager at Advocate Legal Senior Center. A Geriatric Care Manager is a professional that is expert in decisions about how to deal with aging parents.
