How to Come to Terms With the Idea of Sending a Loved One to Senior Care, Freedom, Wisconsin

Sending a loved one to a senior care facility is not an easy decision to make and can lead to a lot of guilt for family members. Elderly care is demanding and laborious, and not everyone has the luxury of being available to watch over someone who needs constant attention. That is why opting for professional senior care is often the smarter and more practical decision to make.

Below are some tips to help family members cope with the guilt of sending someone to a senior care facility:

  • senior careKnow That It’s Not Your Fault: If there’s one thing family members have to understand, it’s that an elderly person’s sickness is not their fault—they have very little control over the situation. All they can do is make their loved one’s life as comfortable as possible.

  • It’s Necessary: Sometimes, choosing to invest in senior care is not just convenient but of utmost necessity. Someone who has demanding medical needs requires constant supervision from professionals who can provide them with adequate attention.

  • It’s Normal to Feel Guilt: Guilt is a normal human emotion, but family members should not allow it to take its toll on their lives. It takes courage to admit that caring for someone you love is no longer within your abilities. Know that in choosing assisted living, your family member will be given a better shot at an improved quality of living.


These are just some ways family members can cope with the guilt that comes with sending their loved ones to senior care. It’s all about making the right decision that will help them be as comfortable as they can be. Country Villa Assisted Living has two locations in Pulaski and Freedom, WI. They provide superior elderly care that aims to assist seniors with their day-to-day needs. Contact them at (920) 422-4620 or visit their website or Facebook page to learn more about their services.
