What support are they likely to need if they want to stay at home? * Making them safe at home: items to help them cope, such as a pendant alarm, key safe, giving neighbours a set of house keys, informing the neighbours of the situation etc. * Planning for the future: How long can they stay in their own home? * Taking control early: how to apply for Power of Attorney and why it's so important. Support from siblings and others. * Coping as your parent needs more support: What to do when their care needs begin to increase. * Exploring the options: Investigating care homes and other options. * Be good to yourself: Taking care of you.
