How to Have a Conversation about Senior Home Care

Life is full of tough conversations. Broaching the topic of senior home care for a parent or loved one in need of assistance can be particularly emotional—but you’re not alone. Many families have been in the same situation, having to make a difficult decision for the health and well being of cherished family member.

It can be upsetting to observe the first signs that a senior you love might be in need of home care. If you’ve already been acting as a primary caregiver, it can be difficult to admit to feeling strained, anxious, and lacking resources to offer the quality of care your loved one needs. The thought of enlisting the help of a “stranger” can seem uncomfortable for some.
