“The Most Beautiful Home”
In a video that's sure to require a Kleenex, The Housing and Development Board produced a tear jerking video about a son's promise to his father. The promise… “When I grow up, I'll give you the most beautiful home.” What we learn from the video is that the home is not just about the place, but the love in the family. That's what makes this video so touching, and something that many of you can probably relate to.
The home is not just about the place, but the love in the family.
There are millions of caregivers in the US and abroad. Many of those caregivers are family members taking care of loved ones. Make no mistake, it takes a great deal of work (and training) to bathe a loved one, to feed a loved one, and to provide medication management to a loved one. That's just 3 of hundreds of duties that caregivers routinely manage on a daily basis. Caring for aging parents is a very difficult job.
This video is NOT meant to advocate for or against placing someone in a nursing home if your loved one cannot care for themselves. In many cases, care facilities can provide a fabulous environment for aging adults, while offering safety and care 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. The key is educating yourself about care needs, and senior housing options BEFORE a crisis hits.
The video certainly is thought provoking, and very well done. We hope you enjoy it.
