Senior Living: How to Introduce the Idea to Your Loved Ones?
The parent/child relationship endures some uncomfortable conversations over the years. That birds and bee talk you had when you were 13? Yeah, you’re probably still reeling from that one!
But how you frame a talk that can be hard to have makes all the difference for both sides. And at no time is that truer than when you have to introduce the idea of home health care or senior living services to your mom, dad or loved one.
The last thing anyone wants is to feel someone is stealing their independence away. Constructing your senior living talk around your parent’s unique personality, needs and relationship with you can help them see this change as a positive – now they can finally have more time and freedom to do the things they love.
