The responsibility of taking care of aging parent’s can be daunting. Trying to maintain your own life, girls, as well as job, along with ensuring your parent’s viability is absolutely stressful. We are in the process of relocating my mom from her new home, more than two states away, to our area, and she is in good health now, however the two of us need to be prepared for what may come in future years. She is not exactly glad with our weather up North so the two of us are upset about finding a arena with the best possible Heating and A/C method that she can afford. There are charming senior housing complexes in our area that have state of the art everything, but, you pay dearly for the amenities. These arenas have brand up-to-date Heating and AC units that are programable as well as offer the highest level of filtration as well as air quality control. That is all well as well as good, gave you are not on a fixed income. This is not the case with my mom so the two of us had to do some searching to find the perfect spot for her. We were able to find a nice apartment in the area that has income based rent as well as offers quality heating during the colder months. We will need to purchase a portable a/c component for her to use during the Summer months as well as our local Heating and AC dealer carries many models that will task just wonderful for that. Our goal is to allow her to remain as independent as possible however the two of us want her to be close enough so the two of us can address any troubles that come up in the future. It reminds myself and others of when our girls got their first apartments as well as the two of us upset about them all the time. I guess one day they will be doing the same thing for my husband as well as I. Everything comes full circle in time.
