My Mummy's World : Thinking of my family in the future.

Thinking of my family in the future.

One of the downsides to getting older is the thought of family members getting older too. Being a younger mum myself, I’m lucky enough to still have three grandparents still alive. I still see my one Nan every week and obviously she is getting older and more forgetful as time goes on. She’s lucky enough to still live within her own home – the home in which she had her family and enjoyed her younger days.

However, this isn’t always the case and I’ve also experienced having ‘family members’ within a care home. Not my family in particular but Jack’s great-grandmother on his father’s side. His family went through lots of different decisions to choose the right care home, one which provided good care as well as a nice environment for her.

As well as choosing a good care home environment there is also the costs to consider. Many families struggle with this, and I know if I had to consider care of either of my parents or grandparents this would play a huge impact. Barchester have produced a useful eBook which helps you with how to pay for the care. Obviously you want the best care for your family, I know I do and sometimes this can come at a cost but it doesn’t always need to.

Do you have any family within a home?
