My grandmother has always been a very independent person, so I knew I was going to have a fight on my hands when I approached her about giving up her home. I knew she would not be happy in a personal care home, which is why I asked her to move in with me. I wanted to be able to help her, and my husband and kids supported this move. However, she did not. She felt she would be a burden, so it was not surprising when she did research on senior home care in Long Island.
She had heard about a company that provides excellent care to people who want to remain in their homes but might need some assistance in order to do so. A lot of them just need a helping hand since they are getting older, which is exactly the case for my grandmother. She was still pretty healthy, but she was getting more frail.
