In an effort to create awareness of aging, a few programmers have created a website that reminds people how quickly time flies. The website is called SeeYourFolks.com and it a serious reminder that time is fleeting and family members are growing older.
Simple Website Speaks Volumes
At SeeYourFolks.com, users simply choose their country and fill in the rest of the blanks. Once they hit “Show My Results” they will be given a number that could make them realize that it is time to visit their parents. This website is a quick attitude adjustment for adult children to begin to slow down and appreciate what they have so they can happily open up their homes for family home care service.
In today’s world, there are many families who are dreading the fact that they might have to provide home care service for elderly family members. The fact that adult children might have to act as in home care providers for their parents is frightening, but not because it means that their parents are getting older. Adult children are so busy that the idea of taking care of someone else is simply overwhelming. But, with SeeYourFolks.com, there will be many adult children who will change their tunes. Those adult children who will be providing in home care services for their parents will be able to see their parents every day, greatly increasing the number of times that they will be able to see their parents before their lives end.
Helping to Solve Care Conflicts
This simple website that was crafted in less than 24 hours (according to the website) can be used to draw support for home care services. In many families, there are conflicts surrounding what type of care elderly parents will receive. When families who are contemplating something other than home care services they do not want to be bothered by caring for senior parents, and this website can help convince them of the importance of keeping elderly parents closer to home.
The results on SeeYourFolks.com come from the World Health Organization and the life expectancy rates from 2011, so the numbers are simply averages. Family members should keep these numbers in mind when they are making decisions about in home care services. If a stranger provides in home health care services rather than a family member, then that means that family members will see their elderly relatives even less.
More Home Care by Choice
Home health care services should not be a last resort for families who are unable to find or afford care in assisted living centers or elderly communities. For many senior citizens, the most comfortable place for them is to be around the people they love the most. Seniors who feel loved and appreciated will return the love and appreciation so many times over. Caring for elderly parents is truly rewarding and many people do not realize it until their parents have passed away. Hopefully the programmers who developed SeeYourFolks.com will make the world a more caring place as people are able to quickly realize how little time they have left with their parents. So they begin to spend more quality time with them.
