Home for the Holidays...Plus One

Home for the Holidays + One = Multigenerational Living

You’re home for the holidays and it’s becoming more and more obvious that Mom can’t live alone anymore. One possible solution may be to invite your parent home to live with your family.

How do you determine that this is the best decision for your entire family?

How do you open the discussion about the possibility of your parent moving in with your family?

How will this new living arrangement impact your family dynamic?

Will your work schedule suffer?

What are some of the options and how do you begin building a transition plan?

In this video “Team Approach and Caring for Yourself,” Mary Alexander from Home Instead Senior Care talks about how you can care for yourself as a caregiver. One way to prevent burn-out and overload is to create a “team” to help in the caregiving process. The team can consist of other family members, friends, neighbors and paid service providers. The burden of caregiving shouldn’t fall solely on your shoulders. But how do you build that team and make time for yourself? Start by listening to what Mary has to say in the following video

Also, there are many resources in the Houston area that offer information about transportation services, adult day care sites, professional caregiving support, and other support groups. A great way to begin your research is to contact Houston area organizations such as Fort Bend Seniors and Houston Area Alzheimer’s Association.

Please share your stories, insights and ideas about multi-generational living!
