How To Start The Conversation About In-Home Care In Duncan, OK, and the Surrounding Areas

Comfort Keepers offers pointers on bringing up the conversation regarding in-home care to senior loved ones in Duncan and the surrounding area.

When starting the conversation about senior care with a loved one, it is best to be prepared and understand how to approach it most positively. Ideally, please consult with a caregiver from Comfort Keepers who can provide an in-home consultation to discuss the benefits that they offer. When sitting down with a senior loved one to discuss the positive aspects of in-home care, avoid pushing too hard and consider having multiple conversations to allow the concept of senior care to sink in. In most cases, having the entire family around when discussing senior care with a senior is the best option.  

When discussing in-home care with a senior loved one, focus on the advantages, like companionship, transportation around the area, and assistance with basic living responsibilities. In many cases, seniors become lonely, and having a caregiver who they can connect with is a great way to reduce isolation. Having a senior meet with a team of caregivers may increase their open-mindedness regarding senior care. Since our team of caregivers can bring seniors out into the community, focus on this concept when discussing senior care with them. Caregivers can bring clients to the store, the parks in the area, and even the Duncan Senior Citizens Center so they can spend time with others in Duncan, OK.

When discussing home care with a senior, also discuss other options like the nursing home or assisted living facilities. Often, seniors choose in-home care by default, as they don't want to move into a nursing home or assisted living facility. The advantages to staying in their home are obvious, as seniors can enjoy a familiar environment and encourage family members to visit anytime.

When discussing home care with a senior, have the entire family around to quell fears. If all family members agree that senior care is best, the chances that your beloved senior will agree are significantly higher. If a senior is on the fence regarding senior care, encourage them to try it temporarily and see if they like it. When working with our team of caregivers from Comfort Keepers, your senior loved one will likely notice the advantages immediately and decide that having a caregiver around is beneficial.

Realize that a conversation about senior care with a loved one will likely be difficult and will often require more than one conversation to convince them of its benefits. However, by focusing on the positive aspects of senior care, senior loved ones will likely eventually agree to it, especially because they can continue living at home indefinitely.
