How to talk to your elderly parents about getting a little help at home

Talking to Elderly Parents about Home Care

It can be difficult for your elderly parents to admit they need support at home, it’s even more difficult for you to broach the subject with them…

They just want to do their own thing like they have done for years…

It’s better to lay the cards on the table now, rather than when a crisis point is reached…

You might find they’ve got concerns anyway and they’ll be pleased you’ve brought it up…

Be sensitive in your approach, try to listen to their concerns, and what they want out of life…

Take the opportunity to talk when you’re on neutral territory and everyone is feeling relaxed and together…

Let them know that you love them, you’re worried about them and that you want to help…

They might not react well to the suggestion of getting help, try not to treat them like a child and respect their wishes, the more you push, the more difficult it will be…

Alleviate fears. Home care is a support service, it’s not designed to take over their lives, it’s there to support their independence and help them to live life in the way they want to…

Early intervention, even a few hours of support a week can prevent later crises requiring hospitalisation, or worse …

Carewatch can help you at every step of the way, it can help to have a care professional come and chat with you all together…
