Slide 1: ComForcare HOME CARE Communicating With Your Aging Parent
Slide 2: If Your Parents are in Their 60s or 70s, It’s Time to Talk It’s never too soon to talk about health care preferences and medical treatment options with your parents. Knowing your parents’ wishes eliminates the burden of being the head of the family or sole decision maker during a time of crisis. Call ComForcare at 800-886-4044 www.ComForcare.com
Slide 3: When to Talk to Your Parents Health and age-related issues are often avoided in our society. These conversations are necessary, but hard for many adult children. Whether you are a family caregiver, an adult child who lives far away from a loved one or simply a busy person, these talks should happen before a health-related situation arises. Call ComForcare at 800-886-4044 www.ComForcare.com
Slide 4: Tips for a Successful and Productive Family Care Meeting • Prepare and distribute an agenda prior to the meeting. Ask your parents to prioritize the topics. • Provide options and facts for each topic so everyone feels more confident about their choices. • Don’t go into the meeting with mandates – listen first and question second. Call ComForcare at 800-886-4044 www.ComForcare.com
Slide 5: Tips for a Successful and Productive Family Care Meeting • If the discussion becomes heated and conflicts cannot be resolved, stop for now and resume the conversation another time. • Look for solutions that maximize the parent’s independence. Focus on strengths and address contingency plans. Call ComForcare at 800-886-4044 www.ComForcare.com
Slide 6: Tips for a Successful and Productive Family Care Meeting • Avoid “baby talk” or using a condescending tone. It puts people on the defensive and shows a lack of respect. • Consider bringing in a third party with expertise in health-related issues. A geriatric care manager, nurse, social worker or home care provider may be able to assist you. Call ComForcare at 800-886-4044 www.ComForcare.com
Slide 7: ComForcare Home Care A premier provider of private duty home care services with locations throughout the United States and in Canada and the U.K. For a location near you, call: 800-886-4044 Supporting independence, dignity and quality of life ComForcare Home Care 2510 Telegraph Road, Suite 100 Bloomfield Hills, MI 48302 www.ComForcare.com
