If you or a family member are planning to be the one responsible for assisting your aging loved one with personal care, home upkeep, transportation, housecleaning, etc, this can quickly become very stressful as the family member now becomes a "caregiver" instead of a son or daughter and family relationships can become strained.  So many times, family members have told us how liberating it is to have mom or dad's daily needs taken care of in assisted living so that they may once again enjoy visiting and sharing a social call as opposed to spending the time involved in labor.
