A Fifty-Year Marriage
Golden Pond care managers help a couple that has been married 50 years to stay together in their home. He has mobility issues, and she is diabetic.
They have been doing pretty well, but they can no longer drive. They have trouble keeping the house clean and maintained and the bills paid. Until recently, she was able to help him dress and bathe, but lately it’s just tough for her.
Their concerned son called us to provide an assessment and recommendations for a senior living community. The couple was adamant that they did not want to leave their home. Together, we worked out a plan that enables them to have help with household chores, grocery shopping, meal preparation, transportation and daily hygiene needs.
The couple knows that they can stay in their beloved home a while longer, but they have realized that they will have to have more help soon. We are working with them on a plan that gives them options and keeps them in charge of their lives while giving their son peace of mind.
