Long Term Care Planning for Elderly Guardians

Unable to make any informed decisions on their medical care, financial issues, or living arrangements, elderly living with serious physical or cognitive illnesses may require another person to make such informed decisions for them.

A legal guardianship is a way that a court can appoint an appropriate guardian  when there was no prior estate planning or power of attorney established.  Furthermore, a guardian can be obtained by any competent adult who have no criminal history.  Typically, the court would favor a family or a close friend of the elderly person as they know the in’s and out’s of the person’s life. Often times, living arrangements need to be made for these individuals due to their state of health, thus long term care planning becomes an important part of the responsibilities for the appointed legal guardian.

The 4 A’s to Focus on in Stress Management

Avoid, Alter, Accept, and Adapt.

Using one of these methods can begin to help you live a more balanced life, reduce your stress, and provide you with greater abilities to cope with stress also increases according to the Mayo Clinic.

Whether it is a person, the surrounding, or situations, there are certain things that you can simply avoid and not face the stress that comes with it.  For example, avoid stressing over getting to work on time by taking the longer, less traffic routes and leaving home earlier.

Lifestyle and bad habits could be a cause for stress as well.  So altering some things in life, such as being more open about sharing your feelings with others, learn better time management, or even asking others respectfully to change some of their behaviors can put less stress on yourself.

There are some things that we cannot control or change, and many people have difficulties accepting these circumstances.  If you can learn to have a talk with others about things that are bothering you, or forgive someone who have angered you, then your stress will become more manageable.

Finally, being stubborn will not get you anywhere.  One must learn to adapt.  Changing your unattainable goals to more realistic ones, stop your negative thoughts before it begins to creep up on you, and adopting a mantra like “I can handle this” or “could be worse” can help you stay positive and cope with any stress you might have.

Stress relief should not be tackled alone, there should always be support and assistance from others.  If you have loved ones who are stressed and you wish you could provide more support in addition to the time you have already provided, then consider caregivers from A-1 Home Care.  Our caregivers are experts in providing the best in home care around town.  We cover the areas of Arcadia, Pasadena, San Marino, Temple City, Rosemead, Alhambra, Monrovia, Azusa, Duarte, and many more cities around San Gabriel Valley.  For over 20 years, our company has been improving the life quality for those needing After Surgery Care, Alzheimer Care, Diabetic Care, Hospice Care, Incontinence Care, Cancer Care, Post Stroke Care, Parkinson Care, and other elderly home care services.
