Starting the Home Care Discussion

Find out the best method to speak to your elderly loved one about in-home senior care.

It's time to have a difficult discussion with your loved one if you've done your research and found that in-home care is the best choice for them. It may be challenging, overwhelming, and humiliating to have this conversation with your parents, but it is in their best interests for you to do so and determine whether they concur with your plan for their care. Keep a few things in mind to make sure this conversation proceeds as smoothly as possible.

It's All About Timing

Although there isn't a perfect time to discuss this with your aging parent, you should do so while they are still healthy and able to make their own choices. Make sure they fully participate in the conversation and allow them to voice their worries, skepticism, aspirations, and preferences. They must be involved in the decision-making process from the beginning; merely informing them that they will receive senior care can cause conflict.

Choose a Good Location

Instead of having this discussion in front of people, pick a quiet, private place where your parent will feel at ease. An excellent choice is to stay at their own or a family member's house.

Designate a Leader

Talk to your family members and come to an understanding of the main points of the discussion before you have this important conversation with your loved one. A renowned speaker should be chosen to lead the debate and make sure that everyone has a chance to speak. When the discussion begins, you'll all be on the same page, showing your seniors that in-home senior care is an excellent choice for them.


Your parent needs to understand that they are not alone and that you will make every effort to ensure a smooth transfer to in-home senior care. Tell them you will keep paying them visits and spending time with them because you care about them.
