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.
If you are considering whether you or your loved one should remain at home or transfer to assisted living, there are some things you will want to take into account.
First of all, you will want to consider the costs.

Housekeeping and cleaning supplies or services
Lawn care or snow removal
Assistance with personal care
Transportation, auto insurance, upkeep, etc.

Cost of in-home health aide
