The holidays may help reveal “Mom simply can’t do it all, anymore.”
You walk into Mom’s house on Thanksgiving. The aroma of glazed turkey, stuffing, and
gravy bring back all the memories of good times with family.
But things around the house aren’t how they usually are. Mom’s behind on the cooking, having a hard time getting around the kitchen, she looks a little frazzled and her blouse hasn’t been ironed. Bath and laundry rooms aren’t quite as tidy as you remember – a sight you know she wouldn’t want guests to see.
As you and the kids help carry dishes to and from the kitchen, you want to ask Mom a question. You’re nervous. Because you know her answer could very well open up a new chapter in both of your lives.
But you know you need to ask.
“Mom, is everything okay? Do you need. . .help?”
Every day at Lincoln Park Manor, we support seniors and their families on the journey to find the right answer for them to questions like these.
The fact is, answering yes – “I want help.” – doesn’t necessarily lead straight to a nursing home. Locally owned and operated Lincoln Park Manor has offered Assisted Living with all the comforts and amenities of home to Miami Valley residents for a quarter of a century.
Our 30 private Assisted Living suites offer Mom all the privacy and comfort she desires. There are two different floor plans, one of which includes a kitchenette with minirefrigerator, cupboard space, and sink. Every room also features a private bathroom with walk-in shower, a carpeted living area, and a large picture window for a pleasant sunny atmosphere.
But our care for Mom doesn’t end with an Assisted Living Suite. When Mom (or Dad) becomes the one who needs help with daily activities, there can be a LOT to do -- and not just on Thanksgiving.
From running errands to doing chores, from helping with prescriptions to cooking their favorite meals, the fact is, you can’t do everything yourself. That’s why our Assisted Living solutions offer services that help Mom to enjoy her Golden Years Safely. Our personalized assistance ranges from simple monitoring and personal care to the most medically complex needs.
Chef-prepared delicious meals with exquisite menu options mean that Mom never has to go hungry, and 24/7/365 on-site nursing staff means you have peace of mind about her daily routine.
Regular activities and social gatherings will keep her moving, and if she needs help getting
active again, Rehabilitation Therapy is available too.
So this Thanksgiving, know that when you ask Mom or Dad that question about how they’re doing – and you get the sense they’re open to help – you know who to suggest.
We are honored to be your family’s partner in caring for Mom or Dad. Call us at 937-297-4300 to schedule that first conversation.
