We all know how stubborn elderly parents can get, especially when it comes to taking the advice of their ‘kids’. It is futile to argue with them because “parents are always right”, correct?
Another factor that makes them stubborn is their fear of losing their independence.
Imagine this, needing someone’s help with everything you could ever do, including the simplest tasks like having a shower or watching the television. This lack of control could be very frustrating and it causes the stubbornness that is common among many elderly people. This is where dementia care can take over the situation at home. Their main goal is working along with both yours’ and your parents’ wishes.
While there is no cure for ‘stubbornness’, it certainly can be managed. Since it is entirely the matter of the psyche, a careful and sensitive approach is the ideal way to deal with this situation.
• Elderlies do not even realise when their stubbornness is irrational. Therefore, if you have an open mind and are considerate in helping them, they can realise their mistake.
• Dementia care at home specialises in making the situation conceivable for everyone.
• They also help you prepare for any behavioural changes that might occur.
• They encourage you to think of the future and treat your parents with the respect they deserve.
• The power equation is reversed in these situations and both you and your parents need expert help in handling the changes time is bringing to you.
• Experts providing dementia care at home advice that the best option while dealing with your parents, is treating them like adults and handling them with maturity.
• They also help you avoid or effectively tackle stressful situations.
