My story is not an uncommon one...
As one of seven children, my parents raised each of us to become independent, self-sufficient adults. We had our own lives and talents, our own families and careers. Yet we all grew increasingly anxious of my father’s declining health and feared that my mother wouldn’t be able to care for him and herself at the same time.
Then it happened. My father suffered a stroke that rendered him paralyzed, incontinent, and deeply depressed. My mother became aloof and stressed. My siblings had different (sometimes opposing) arguments about what to do next. Our fears were slowly being realized.
One night, while watching a movie with Dad, he struggled to get up. Despite my efforts to help him, he swatted me away. After much persistence, I discovered that he had wet himself. I wanted to clean him up, so I took him to the bathroom.
He looked up at me and said, eyes wet with tears, "I'm supposed to be taking care of you."
Through tears, I replied, "Dad, you took care of me my whole life. Now it’s my turn to take care of you."
I then realized how many families face the same predicament of caring for their parents while juggling their own families and careers. The solution was to find a source for compassionate, trustworthy, and skilled assistance from amazing people who weren’t members of the family, but pretty close to it. People who help to maintain independence, offer respite, protect dignity, communicate with my siblings, and ensure my parents’ safety.
My story is not an uncommon one. And that is why I formed Beacon Home Care.
