According to National Institute on Aging, November is National Long-term Care Awareness Month and most long-term care is provided at home by friends and family. Taking care of a loved one can be tough at times but it is also a rewarding task.
As we age, we will tend to need a little more help with everyday tasks. Eventually some people will find themselves being cared for by a close friend or family member. For many elders, the transition from an authority figure to a more subordinate role is a difficult one. The shift in power can oftentimes be a big adjustment for all that are involved.
