It Takes a Village to Help an Elder Flourish!

Tom Brokaw named the World War II generation, The Greatest Generation, possessing personal responsibility, duty, honor, and faith. Many of our clients belong to this generation, serving during WWII or keeping the home fires burning while their loved ones were fighting for the ideals of this country. The strong value system of the Americans of this era do not end with them, however. They have passed them on to their children and grandchildren. These admirable characteristics weave through the families of many of these war veterans, producing progeny who are exemplary in the care of their parents and grandparents.

Elder Care Orlando FL - It Takes a Village to Help an Elder Flourish!Most of the sons and daughters of our clients care deeply for their parents and make decisions that will help their parents live the best lives possible. They love and respect their parents and are tenacious watchdogs, ensuring their parents stay cared for and protected. We at Flourish in Place work closely with the children of our clients to create an appropriate plan of care to allow our clients to flourish in their homes.

Some of our clients tell us they are estranged from their children. Some have lost touch with their siblings and any other close family members. Others never had children. In those cases, close relationships beyond children become much more important. Distant family, friends, and neighbors step in to fill the void. They help us to care better for our clients, providing much-needed close, loving insights. Everyone needs loving connections to the world, even when your world has gotten smaller due to immobility and health limitations.

Our role as the home health caregivers is to listen to our clients and the people who love them, piecing together the best care of plan for their future, with the goal to flourish, not just age. Only the people who know you best can say what will help you thrive in your elder years. Make sure you have the conversations about what you want for your future. Dream big!

About Melanie Lee

Robert “Kim” Lee and Melanie Ann Lee founded Flourish in Place to help seniors and adults with disabilities thrive and flourish while leading dignified and independent lives in the comfort and safety of their own homes. Kim and Melanie raised three remarkable children while helping care for Melanie’s wonderful mother, Kathryn, who lived a rich life despite dealing with bipolar disorder all her life and suffering later from post-polio syndrome. Melanie has cared for her intellectually disabled older sister for the past 18 years as Melinda’s court-appointed plenary guardian. Kim’s mother, Betsy, suffers from severe dementia. She lives in her own home with the help of compassionate family members as well as paid caregivers. Kim and Melanie’s life experiences caring for others influenced their desire to help people not merely “age in place” -- but flourish at home. Kim and Melanie are both Certified Senior Care Managers. Melanie is also a science teacher.
