My wife and I were looking for a quality place that provides senior home care in long island. My mother lives alone. She will not come and stay with us. She does not want to give up the home her and dad lived in since I was born. Mom should actually be in an assisted living facility for some of her needs. She is still on the mend from a fall. She is keeping up her physical therapy and getting stronger, and the house has been outfitted for the disabled. I can understand her desire to stay at home as long as possible. After all, I know I would not ever want to be told I need more care for myself than I can provide on my own. We help her the best we can, but we both have full time jobs. We are simply worn out every day. We need some help with mom’s care. She agreed to having senior home care assistance. This will free us up to get some rest too. If you have never been in this situation, you have no idea how difficult it is for the senior citizens or their families. Some older people in need do not even have any family, friends or neighbors who can or will help. My mom is fortunate to have a support network of family, friends and neighbors and she still needs a little help. We have to do this as a community. The job is too great for families to bear alone. My mother asked if one of us would be able to quit work and take care of her. We would not be able to afford our mortgage and other bills without two incomes. She was going to try and pay us something out of her savings and fixed income. We could not do that, so we just kept on helping her until we wore ourselves out. I fell asleep at work one day. I am glad I did not get fired. My boss has a mom who needs care, and he is the one who told me about the senior home care in Long Island.
