SOMEONE TO LEAN ON
A Candid Word to the Spouse or Adult Child
Perhaps all this talk about assisted living communities is attended with twinges of guilt as the spouse or adult child of a senior in need. You wish you could open your own home to a beloved senior, but other commitments and constraints prevent you. Perhaps you are now the caregiver and feel apprehensive about turning that role over to someone else, despite your self-sacrifice taking its toll on your own health and well-being.
