5 Tips For Caring For Your Elderly Parents in Today’s Busy World


  1. Teach Your Parents How to Use Modern Technology: Take advantage of ICT so that even when you are not present you can speak with them and even see them using video chats etc.
  2. Contact Them Frequently: If you stay around them, make sure you visit them more often than you already do. Let their grandchildren, if they have any, visit them too.
  3. Encourage Them to Go for Social Gatherings: As parents get older, they might want to stay indoors all the time due to mobility issues and the fact that most of their friends are no longer around. Encourage them to go out as this will create more spark in their lives. Also don’t hesitate to go out with them, be it just a walk around the neighborhood or a family trip.
  4. Listen To Them: Elderly parents always like to talk about things, even if they’re telling the story for the 100th time, just listen to them and laugh with them. Don’t shut them up. You don’t know how much good it does for them to have these conversations.
  5. Consider Hiring a Caregiver: They can do everything you want to do for your parents, they even offer long-term care. However, it’s important that whilst the caregivers are doing their jobs, you shouldn’t let their presence take your place in the lives of your aging parents. Your parents need you. Caregivers are just there to help you.
