It’s difficult to watch your loved ones age and lose the ability to take care of themselves. But most times, getting them to accept in home care is even more challenging. When that conversation comes, be prepared and be cautious in the way you present the idea.
1. Get professional advice – Talk to your loved one’s physician. No doubt they have some experience with this sort of thing. Additionally, they have a unique perspective on your loved one’s health status.
2. Be gentle – When you do have this conversation, make sure you are patient and gentle with your loved one. This is not easy for them. Be considerate of their feelings and fears. Even if it takes several conversations, don’t lose your temper. Your anger will not help the situation at all.
