Thinking For The Future

Maybe you’re helping your parents deal with a health challenge. But even if your parents are healthy now, you can’t help but worry about the future. You want to ensure their security and comfort for a long and happy life. Caring for a parent is more than a full-time job. Research shows that one in three adult children consider themselves caregivers, yet most find it difficult to begin a conversation about their parents’ long-term care needs.

Now it’s time for your parents to tell you what they want out of life for the future. When you help your parents choose a Liberty Lutheran community, you can be confident that you’re putting a solid plan in place for health issues that are sure to arise. You want the security of knowing your parent will receive the best possible professional care, will be treated with compassion and respect, and will be able to make the most of life.

Liberty at Home
Almost everyone’s first choice is to stay at home as long as possible. If your parents continue living in their home, you may need to hire a personal care assistant to help with bathing, shopping or laundry. With more serious health issues, you may need people with special training. You may also have to coordinate with physical, occupational or speech therapists to help your loved one recover from surgery or a stroke.

Rehabilitation
Liberty Lutheran’s Medicare-certified, licensed home health agency, Liberty at Home, helps residents maintain their independence. Liberty at Home can also provide rehabilitation therapy services. Our professional team will work with your referring physician and provide you with the skilled services you need for your recovery during the prescribed period of time.

“I wish I’d done this years ago.”
That’s something we hear again and again from our senior living residents—and an important point if you’re concerned about older parents. The time to begin the conversation is while your parents have time to plan a smooth transition. A truly carefree retirement begins when your parents can put their worries aside and enjoy life. The worst time to make a decision is when your parents are facing a health crisis.
