IMAGINE REACHING AGE 80 and looking back on a half-century spent with a
beloved husband or wife. As the years passed, perhaps one spouse grew weaker than the other — as
is often the case — contracting an illness or beginning to forget small, simple things.
The impact of this all-too- common scenario could devastate both spouses and shake the strongest of bonds, as one partner is shoved into the unwanted role of patient while the other steps up to play primary caregiver to the spouse who means so much.
These new roles become even tougher to bear when the caregiver also has health issues — a situation that, again, is often the case.
Caring for an ailing spouse and caring for oneself is tricky business. The increased level of activity and emotions involved — from pain and stress to guilt and resentment — may pose a health risk to both members of the marriage.
For the young and virile, it’s hard to imagine life at age 80 or 90, when the easiest task becomes a challenge and the chore that once took five minutes now requires twenty. Thirty years ago, for instance, making dinner for one’s husband was perhaps a great joy. With age, however, this seemingly simple activity could become a daunting evening exercise.
But many senior couples quietly endure the stress of caring for themselves and each other in an effort to avoid nursing homes or burdening adult children. Home — and the loving memories it holds — may seem worth the struggle.
What families need to know is that there is another option: affordable, customized care, provided onsite at the senior couple’s home. When it comes time for those in a position of trust to make decisions on behalf of a single senior or an elderly couple, HomeWell Senior Care is ready to provide the most appealing, livable solution.
HomeWell offers affordable in-home care that allows couples to continue loving each other, at home, while at the same time enhancing their health and quality of life. The HomeWell advantage is that the rate remains the same whether the care is for one person or a married couple.
