After more than a week of having dizzy spells from Vertigo, the mil felt much better two days ago. So glad that she’s feeling better as we get to have proper home-cooked dinners again 😬
Not that I am totally not made for the kitchen, but chopping garlic, onions and raw meat just ain’t my thing. And all the washing and chopping. The odor of raw garlic, onion, butter and raw meat that lingers on my hands after 10 rounds of washing just turns me off. Not to mention smelling like onions after cooking! If we have a live-in maid like we used to for over 10 years, I really don’t mind baking and cooking as I do not have to clean and wash up after the aftermath. Speaking of which, I really do miss having a live-in maid. I am spoilt like that.
Back at my parents’ in Ipoh, I don’t have to do any cooking. My papa will do all the cooking and mum will bake. My papa even washes the dishes. He wouldn’t let my mum wash the dishes either. Bless his heart. I just help with mopping the floor after they cook.
These are the dishes for our dinner yesterday:
Crispy pan-fried fish eggs and steamed pork with ‘mui choy’. All my favorite dishes!
Much as I love fried fish eggs, I have to resist myself from popping them into my mouth as they are super high in cholesterol! Just to recap, I have genetic high cholesterol though I eat pretty healthily with portions small enough for a toddler.
The fish eggs were scraps from a gigantic mackeral fish. We were at the fishmonger’s van to buy fish yesterday and an old lady didn’t want the fish eggs after she paid for the fish. She said we could have the fish eggs as she dared not eat them for health reasons. I guess she has high cholesterol too.
Independent living is one thing that most people hate to lose as they age. Staying in the home can be made safer by hiring in qualified assistance to help ensure your loved one stays safe and well-cared for each day.
Help Maintain Independent Living
Incorporating quality elder care assistance to your aging loved one is a better way to allow them to maintain more independence in life by allowing them to safely stay at home, rather than placing them in full-time nursing facilities. Allow them the ability to stay in an environment they are comfortable and familiar with.
Safeguard Your Loved One’s Health
Bringing in quality home health care assistance will help safeguard the health of those you love by being able to monitor chronic conditions like heart disease, high blood pressure, diabetes, and more. You can detect problems sooner and seek further medical assistance when needed. It improves their chances of staying healthy longer.
Provide the Consistent Care Your Loved One Needs
You can bring in qualified elder care assistance for times you are not able to be present with your loved one. It’s critical for conditions like Alzheimer’s that someone is able to supervise both day and night. You will eliminate the possibilities of wandering and the dangers of becoming lost.
Ensure Safer Mobility and Daily Care
Reducing the chances your loved one can take a tumble and get injured while trying to motivate around the home can be minimized with elder care assistance. You can get them the daily assistance needed for grooming and basic care. You will feel better about being called away for work or appointments.
Unfortunately, aging is one part of life that cannot be avoided or stopped. It can be dangerous to leave your aging loved one without supervision or assistance if they prefer to stay at home. Health care and basic daily care assistance can help ensure it is a safe environment.
