It’s role reversal day. You may have thought this day would never come, but you know that it has. Unfortunately you discover those weekly visits or even daily phone calls are not enough anymore. Your parent needs real hands on care. You now have to make important decisions, not only for yourself but for your aging parent as well. You need to decide what will be best for both you you, without changing life too dramatically. In many cases you are not alone in life; you have a family and/or career to think about as well. How do you keep up and try to please others around you?
Children in the Montessori classroom are expected to put activities away on shelves when they have completed them. Everything has a designated place, and needs to be put away ready for the next person to use. It will take some organization on your part, but designate shelves and storage boxes for all items. Have your child be responsible for putting away her toys and other activities before moving on to something new. Resist the temptation to clean up after her.
Using an agency might cost you more than hiring someone on your own. At least, up front. But if you hire your own caregiver, you’ll be responsible for paying taxes on their salary. You’ll also be responsible if they hurt themselves, for instance pulling a muscle in their back, while caring for your loved one. It may be simpler in the end to use an agency and let them worry about those things.
Very few people can afford a private CNA in their home. Be reasonable and crunch the numbers. Figure in 24 hour care (3 shifts at $15.00 per hour), medications, personal products, housing, three meals a day, electricity, activities, and several other odds and ends and the cost of elderly home care will be staggering. If you cannot deal with your loved one being forced to wait a few minutes for help, then taking a second or third full time job might be the answer.
Bar soaps are generally not the best cleansers because they dry out the skin. Creamy cleansers are generally the best for dry skin while clear cleansers are the best for oily skin types.

Guaranteed issue policies, on the other hand, will have a waiting period instead of health questions. That way, almost every senior can be accepted. But if the insured person dies before the period ends, the family may not be entitled to the whole face value. Instead they may get the premiums returned, with interest, or they may get some percentage of the face value. You must look at the individual policy for details.
