Indications for Moving
What are the best indications that someone might need to move away from home care and into some kind if assisted living or nursing home. Can a child make this happen if they can show why even if the parent is resistant?
Larry in Georgia, 51
Sometimes we think we know what is best for our parents or loved ones. But as long as the parent or loved one is still competent to make decisions, they must be allowed to run their own lives. If you think there is a case of incompetence, then this must be the decision of the primary doctor, therapist, or legal professional. Sometimes it’s best to have an open discussion about the pros and cons of staying where the elder is versus moving to another setting. Going through this process often lessens the fears and anxieties, and then the practicalities become very clear to everyone involved.
