Family caregivers fill an essential role in our world. As parents grow older, there comes a time when they need some extra help. To begin, that may be as simple as providing a ride to the doctor or taking them grocery shopping. Then it may progress to helping with chores around the house. And finally, there comes a day when they need to stop living alone.
Family caregivers often want their mom or dad to live with them. This works well if family members work together to share the caregiving responsibilities. The following is a list of considerations when caring for an elderly relative. (To keep it simple, we will refer to the person you are caring for as Mom.)
By utilizing the resources and tips here, family caregivers can find support, navigate challenges, and ensure the well-being of their loved ones. Seek support, practice self-care, and reach out for help when needed.

I would like to commend Cristwood Park staff on their efforts to protect themselves and their residents from COVID. It’s been a concern of ours since last March and we have been relieved to see so few cases in the Cristwood Park community. I would like to thank the staff and leadership for their diligence in maintaining good protocols throughout this pandemic.

Exceptional personalized holistic care. Helps keep Mom’s mind active and she flourishes with the nurturing care. Especially of value currently given the COVID restrictions. We are genuinely pleased with our mom's care.
