Why do we procrastinate when it comes to Care?

Close your eyes and pick something small you are procrastinating on, maybe cleaning out a drawer. How good would it feel to knock that out real quick? Now think of something big (meaningful) you have been putting off. Why have you not taken action on it? I guess that it is important to you. You are afraid you may make the wrong decision.

Procrastination frequently happens when we think of the “most important things” like senior care and our family. Maybe you have noticed things your loved one is doing that show that they are getting older. Some things are safe and other things that can be dangerous.

Here are a few things to look out for:

  1. Being forgetful –
  2. Falling or having frequent trips to the ER –
  3. Talking to telemarketers –
  4. Messy or not caring for themselves properly

If you are unsure whether your loved one is in danger, it is an excellent time to call me. I can help listen to what is happening and provide you with options. Once you start taking action on the thing you are procrastinating on, you will feel better. You may save their life.


This month we have a caregiver referral campaign.

If you refer a caregiver to us and they meet the qualifications and start working with us, you get $100, and the new caregiver also gets $100.

It is easy:

  1. Apply at www.slocaregivers.com/caregiver-form
  2. set up an interview with David
  3. Complete the background screening and paperwork

*San Luis Obispo Caregivers, A Referral Agency will pay the $100 Referral fee to the new caregiver and the person who referred them. The new caregiver must work a minimum of 4 hours for both parties to receive the $100. The Campaign ends on November 30, 2022. —

San Luis Obispo Caregivers was created in memory of my Grandfather, Tracy Gordon Wood II. My mission is to honor him by providing trustworthy, compassionate, and competitively priced caregiving services to seniors in my community. After 25 years in the financial industry and the decision to leave behind a successful 6-year position as the Chief Operating Officer of SESLOC Federal Credit Union, I created San Luis Obispo Home Care. This decision served my desire to make a difference and support the growing needs of seniors in my community. As my business grew and I leaned heavily on my financial background, I realized there was a much more cost-effective way to provide seniors with the care they deserve. This realization led to the creation of San Luis Obispo Caregivers, a referral agency and SLO Senior Placement, a free resource for families looking for independent or assisted living options for seniors. Ultimately, I listen, assess your situation and recommend various options that are available for your family.
