Get together to help Grandma !
This lady had been at first employed just for home help and cooking. Over the year, while my Grandmother was getting weaker, this person became a real caregiver. It happened that they both clicked really well and got attached to eachother. The whole family had been quite happy of this situation outsourcing its duty and completly relying on this lady dedication and commitment to manage Grandma. In fact, almost blind and suffering from Degenerative Macula, Grandma could no longer stay at home on her own. Without this lady, the family would simply have no other choice but to shift her to a nursing home or a eldercare facility.
Even though the situation seemed stable and the care of Grandma no longer a problem, the family had a scare lately and was forced in no time to become involved in Grandma’s care again. The precious lady caregiver had to go back to her hometown for 3 months to take care of her son diagnosed with lung cancer. She litteraly left overnight with almost no warning.
Thanks to the reactivity of all the siblings, the family managed to organise a transition in the care but not without difficulty. Two Granddaughters relay eachother for the nights, a daughter took over the mornings routine with showering and breakfast. The rest of the family members took care of the remaining of the day including cooking lunches and dinners. Sincerely, in the emmergency of the situation, all of us contributed the best we could but we did not have any other choices. I must say after a week or so, we all had enough and each of us begged to go back to our normal lives. Our sweet beloved Grandma had become a burden.
Fortunately and to our greatest relief, one of the siblings found www.curanobis.com
Through the website we managed to find a replacement for our caregiver. We managed organise and sustain a care structure that would suit our situation and budget. We all have access to the platform and can monitor the care from where we are. We can select whom we prefer to take care of our Grandmother for as long as required and until her primary caregiver comes back.
