No-one enjoys the specter of growing old. Just ask anyone with those shoes to fill. And such is the irony of life. You do so well for yourself, you always worked hard, and now you really ought to enjoy your retirement years. Also, you took great care over the years. That is why you were in better health and shape than most people around you. Which means that while people you once knew suddenly fall by the wayside, you are still around, wondering when it will be your turn. Will you be the next one to go?
But that day never comes. And so another year goes by. And then all of a sudden, it hits you. You are well and truly feeling (and looking) your age. It’s come to the point that you can no longer take care of yourself, certainly not in the way you have always been able to do, and were quite used to. Heck, you can no longer climb into your car and drive down to the mall, not just to do the weekly shopping but just to hang around and have a good time like all the other good folks are doing. Home. Home is where the heart is.
And home is where you will remain if it has to come to that. But in actual fact, and when you think about it, it does not need to. Because elderly home care services can make certain of that. It’s just that you need to prepare yourself for not going it alone. You will be given assistance every step of the way. Well, you will try, won’t you? You still want to enjoy that sense of independence that you’ve always had, but at least you’ll still have your dignity.
