$50 Amazon GC Giveaway - Presidio Home Care

Disclosure: This is a sponsored post. All opinions stated are genuine and my own. 


When you have a parent or other loved one who has to be in full-time care, making the decision of where to put them can be hard on everyone. It is certainly never a decision to be taking lightly. My mom has approached the topic with me lightly, and I know someday, I may have to discuss it with my own children.  My aunt and uncle live on the west coast, and are very happy with the senior home care in LA options they have found for his mother, who absolutely needs full-time supervision. I am very happy for them that they feel at peace with the facility they have selected.

If you have ever gone through the process, you know just how taxing it can be. If you live in the LA area and are searching for a good care facility (whether full-time, sporadically, hourly, or just to help you or a loved one get back on your feet), take a look at Presidio Home Care to see if they might be a good fit. Their reputation is good, and their options are plentiful!

Thanks to the generosity of today's sponsor, one lucky reader is going to get a $50 Amazon gift card to call their own. US & Canada only.

That sounds like a great resource for people out on the west coast. I haven't had to look into anything like this for my own parents yet, but they are getting older, so maybe it's time to start.

Michelle Martinka said...

That's a great resource. My uncle is very ill and hard to care for- I will pass this info along to my family out there. I am scared for this day for my own mom, but I have a few more years on her spry-senior-self!

Mama to 5 said...

LOVE Amazon, it's my favorite place to shop! The information definitely sounds like a great resource!

Heather Jones said...

This is so nice that they are trying to spread the word about their services through an Amazon giveaway. It sounds like an organization that really cares.

This sounds like such a great service, our parents need help as they get older and often times we are at work when they need things.

Grace said...

I helped a couple who were friends transition over to an assisted living home and that was a real 'eye opener' It is really best to check out the options as some facilities are lacking. I'm so glad your aunt and uncle are happy where they are residing.

Scott said...

This does sound like a great product, I wonder if something similar is available in the Midwest?

Pat Hatt said...

Canada gets to play too, yippee haha some facilities are really really bad.

Kathy said...

Sounds like a great product! Thanks for sharing.

Erinn Sluka said...

We dread this for my in-laws because we know we will be there soon!

Aimee Fauci said...

Great resource. I don't live in that area but I RT for those that do.

Frugal and Fun Mom said...

I have to agree that this can be a very touchy subject, but it is a reality. It is better to take care of these arrangements for family in advance versus scrambling last minute to work out all the details.

Sandee said...

My mother in law is 94 and can't be left alone. She's still in her house, but she has tons of extra care. Expensive too. It's what she wants...she doesn't want to go into a home and we'll do our very best to honor that.

Have a fabulous day. :)

Lisa said...

Thank You For The Great Information & AWESOME Giveaway!

Kay Adeola said...

Thank you for sharing this.It hard to decide what to do when our parents etc get older.

Theresa Mahoney said...

Thankfully, I haven't had to worry about that, as all relatives live near. It's great that there is a tool out there for those who do need this though!

~ Noelle said...

being a caregiver is a very hard thing to do...
i know everyone needs to have those talks, it is just hard to do sometimes

Celebrity VIP Lounge said...

Oh I would love to win this. Thanks! Amber N

Jaredamy said...

Thanks for sharing about this company. I can't even imagine my parents being elderly at this point.

Kristal Deane said...

I can agree with some on not having to worry about providing for any relatives at this point but it's great to be introduced to companies like this for future consideration! Thanks for sharing. :)

jaime said...

We had to find care for my grandfather a few years ago, and it was tough! Good home care is hard to come by, and it definitely takes a lot of research.

Growing Up Madison said...

This is great to know. My mom can benefit from a place like this and great giveaway!

Annemarie Leblanc said...

Being a caregiver isn't the easiest task to be given.

Angel said...

Nice contest! I think just about everyone would be interested in winning $50 from Amazon! :) Good information, too.

Lady Lilith said...

Thanks for hosting such an amazing giveaway. Amazon is the best place to shop.

Annie said...

Definitely a talk that everyone needs to have sooner rather than later. I am pretty much not putting my parents in a home unless absolutely necessary! I've worked in one & though some facilities look great, I don't trust the care once visiting hours are over with...sadly.

The Mommy-Files said...

My dad is in his 70s and it honestly scares me to think he'll be in a home someday. I'm not prepared at all, only having the experience of seeing my grandpa go into a home.

fancygrlnancy said...

We had both my great grandmother and my great great aunt in a facility. IT is always difficult to make the decision and to worry about how their care is.

Carla WorkingMommyJournal said...

Thank you for hosting such a great giveaway - fingers crossed!

GayNYCDad said...

I have just started to think about this for me. I turned around and am suddenly 55! I can't count on my son being rich enough to have someone to take care of me so I need a back up plan.
thanks!
Mitch

Megan Chamberlin said...

My Nana is nearly 90, and lives with my aunts, with my mom and other family members chipping in to help out. I can see how taxing it can be at times on them, and my husband and I really need to discuss the future with our own parents.

Anonymous said...

What a great giveaway you're having. Proper in home care is so important.

Melanie Burbage said...

I have someone in full time care, and it's so pricey! I wish care, didn't have to come at a price. It's really sad. Great giveaway!

Sister's Saving Cents said...

Great to know. My mom and I talk about this subject all the time. I'm the favorite.....shhhhh don't tell. LOL and she wants to make sure she comes with me when the time comes and of course she will!

Tracey said...

This is a great giveaway! Home care that is good is hard to find!

This seems like a great option for those who need it. What a great giveaway too!

Casa Vilora Interiors said...

MikiHope said...

I have this conversation with my Mom every once in a while-se is still in good shape mentally-but that day may come. I hope I can find a place like this on the East Coast.

Bonnie Gowen said...

Thanks for letting me know about this company. I'm not at that point where I have to worry about something like that for my parents but soon I will. Thanks for sharing.

DeDa Studios said...

$50 from amazon seems like a great prize to win. I will be looking into Presidio Home Care.

Nicole said...

Having the conversation is one of the hardest parts. Then finding care that fits well with your life and personality is next. Great giveaway from your sponsor!

bxcrochet said...

Marielle Altenor said...

That's a great service! Sharing this and entering the giveaway too! =)

Amanda Her said...

My mom lives with us, and it's so scary to think that she might not be able to one day. It's a tough subject to talk about for sure!

Kenneth Clutario Agudo said...

Wow this sounds so special and helpful Great review, and I have also joined the giveaway, hope it is open in Philippines

Jeanine said...

Sounds great! Sadly, I don't have to worry about any of this all the elders in my family have passed away but I have passed the info along!

Jade Schwartz said...

Looks like a great place for elderly loved ones. My MIL might need it someday. Thanks for the giveaway.

P Bishop said...

Thank you for the info. It sounds like a great giveaway. Sounds like a good place to send your loved ones, when they need lots of care.

Brijdeep Kaur said...

sounds great for someone who cannot take much care of themselves any more, and they are our loved ones..

Ann B said...

My parents are getting older and I am starting to think more and more about their future care. I know it will be a tough decision when the time comes.

Carly from The Puzzled Palate said...

My grandfather was in a care facility like this for the last 3 years of his life. It really makes a difference to the patient and to the family which place you choose!

Cassie Tucker said...

My grandmother is thinking about moving into an apartment complex that's meant for seniors. It's like a step above an assisted living facility.

valmg said...

We cared for my Grandma when she was alive years ago. I'm the only one of 4 kids that is willing to care for my parents if the need arises.

MyDomesticDish said...

Oooh, Canadians get to participate too? haha, Nice! Thanks :P
I can't really comment upon the care, as I'm nowhere near LA but I think they're generous and open to communicating if they've sponsored a giveaway. Both good signs.

Stopping by to say hello and leave some comment love from the Dish!

My grandparents (who are now retired) owned a "Comfort Keepers" which is an at home (non-medical) assistance program for seniors who aren't quite ready to transition into a full time care facility or to live with family members who are willing to help care for them as they age. I am a firm believer in helping family so I would love to be able to take care of my parents as they get older. It looks like Presidio offers a great service to senior citizens!

Christie C said...

It can be overwhelming to find a place for your loved ones. Thanks for the suggestion and giveaway
