Adult Son Cares For His Elderly Father In The Most Loving Way

Adult Son Cares For His Elderly Father In The Most Loving Way

Sometimes ad companies really know how to tug at our heart strings! So many of the Boomer generation are beginning to age and fall victim to their mortal bodies. With costs of elderly care on the rise, many of their children are becoming in-home caregivers. While this is an important step in development and life, it doesn’t make it any easier for either party.


Caregiving isn’t just being a warm body in the room. Often it come with learning to care for all of the basic needs of the individual. One of those tasks is shaving. This is no easy task! It’s hard enough to shave your own face or legs without a nick, much less trying to help someone else. Gillette razors apparently received enough “help me” mail that they have recently introduced a new razor specifically designed to help with assisted shaving!

With the new Gillette razor came the most touching documentary-styled ad “Handle With Care”. Kristian Rex is now caring his aging father who suffered a stroke. The pair share a striking resemblance. From first introduction of Kristian waking his father, “Good morning, Sir… How are you doing today?” Kristian cups his father’s face and they both share a chuckle.

“I remember always looking at my Dad’s arms, when I was like 8,9, 10 years old. He had arms like Popeye...I so admired his physique. And now, it’s a different story, you know? And that’s just the way it is.”

For adult children facing this experience with their aging parents, that one moment hits home – hard. After a childhood of seeing our parents as “infallible” it’s hard when it comes time to watch their decline and realize that the parent-child relationship is beginning to flip. Nothing can truly prepare your heart for the ups and downs that come with that role reversal.

“...I’d do anything. Anything for him… It’s actually an honor to do that for your Father because he did that for me as a kid.”

What a blessing to be able to love and care for each other! Though it’s a truly hard daily feat,

One of the best ads I have ever seen ❤️❤️❤️!
