Managing the affairs for your own life is difficult enough. When you take on the role of a primary caregiver for somebody else, everything seems to become exponentially complicated. Yet, you wouldn’t turn your back on your elderly mother, father, or other loved one. Not for any amount of money in the world.

Still, you can’t escape the simple reality of stress. Caregiver stress infiltrates just about every caregiver’s life, whether they realize it at the time or not. In the age of COVID-19, things have become even more exasperating, difficult, and stressful.

Senior care is a wonderful option to consider for those elderly individuals who need some level of support and assistance. There are numerous types of senior care available, but the most popular happens to be in-home care.


Most seniors want to age in place.

This basically means they want to remain home for the rest of their life, if possible. It may not always be possible, but in most cases, it is a legitimate option to consider.

Senior care is a term that encompasses many options, including independent living, assisted living, nursing homes, and in-home care. What makes in-home care so popular and preferred?


It’s all about comfort.

When a person has the opportunity to remain home, that is one of the most comfortable environments there is. The longer that senior has lived in the same place, the more comfortable home becomes.

Yet, this year, everything has been complicated. Senior care support services and other resources have been seriously taxed to their limits. Availability is low. That means some seniors may not have the options they prefer, but that shouldn’t leave anyone without care.


What can families do to support an aging senior who needs care?

Most family step up to provide some level of care themselves. However, that means sacrifice. They usually sacrifice their jobs, careers, time with their other loved ones, and so forth.

But they don’t have to. When you realize the inherent value of in-home care support services, especially through a home care agency, you realize help is available and it is just a phone call away.

Even though many home care agencies have been stretched thin due to the coronavirus, they can still provide the support most seniors require.

You don’t have to hire somebody for full-time, around-the-clock care, but rather for a couple of hours or even for a couple of days a week only. That’s the benefit that home care agencies offer when it comes to senior care.

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.
