Understand and Allay Concerns


Understand and Allay Concerns

When trying to convince someone that they need assistance, it is important to understand, address, and allay their concerns.  Most people with chronic illnesses need reassurance that they will not lose their independence and dignity and that they will not be a burden to others.  When I recommend assistance, I emphasize that the purpose of a caregiver or assisted living is to maintain independence, health, safety, and quality of life.  In all cases, the recommendations are to help the individual maintain their own goals and their current lifestyle as much as possible.
