5 Tips for Handling the Stress of Aging Parents

If you're one of the many -- approximately 44 million -- adult Americans who are helping to provide care for their aging parents, you're probably well aware of how stressful a role it is to take on. Even if your parents are in good health, but just need a little help with certain activities, it doesn't mean you worry any less about them. In fact, you may worry more, since your concerns involve a future you can't clearly picture, and ailments you can't predict.

Whether your aging parents are just now losing some of their independence or already require in-home elder care or residency at a nursing facility, there's a lot to be stressed out about when it comes to their care.

You worry about their health and wellbeing, their declining abilities and their shrinking independence, and about being able to pay for the care they currently or one day will need.

The good news is there are things you can do to help reduce your stress caused by caring for your aging parents. First, we'll look at a piece of advice we don't receive nearly enough.

"We have a special needs daughter who needed her foot looked at. Thankful that Affinity accepted her Medicaid first of all. Staff was nice, did not have a long wait, doctor was knowledgeable and understanding with our daughter, which means a lot. She was able to get x-rays done on her foot and received the results before we left. A great place to go on short notice."
"Facility was very clean. Very short wait. The doctor and x-ray tech were great!!"
"Fast and friendly. Was in and out in about an hour, and the PA and nurses were great. Much better experience than the ER."
"The Affinity care clinic in Galveston was wonderful. I walked in Memorial Day (without an appointment) and was seen by a very courteous and helpful staff. I highly recommend them."
