My Parent Refuses to Receive Care: What Should I Do?

Are your parents refusing to receive care or get assistance? This is one of the most difficult ordeals a family member can face. Nothing can be more frustrating than a loved one who refuses to accept help. However, before you go raging on your parents, try to understand where their fear is coming from. Know that aging is not easy for everyone, especially for seniors who are suffering from various health problems.

These are some of the strategies you can do:

• Ask questions and listen. There is a reason why your loved one acts the way they do. Take the time to have a meaningful conversation wherein you will be able to unravel the fears that drive the refusal. And rather than denying them or telling them that there are no grounds for what they feel, learn to listen and validate instead. By doing so, you are building mutual trust.

• Offer options. As much as possible, include your loved one in the decision-making process. Bring them to interviews or site visits. That way, they will feel that they still have control over their independence and that their opinion is respected and valued.

Beware of Medication Mistakes

Medication can be helpful when it comes to treating illness or diseases. However, when you take the wrong medication at the wrong time with the wrong dosage, then this is when medication can be dangerous to your health. That is why in an assisted living facility, your loved ones are monitored by professionals to ensure that they take their medication the right way.

Keep Your Brain Active Amidst Aging

As people age, the brain’s cognitive ability decreases. A person who once used to be sharp and alert will eventually become forgetful and unfocused. But even if this phenomenon is natural and inevitable, it does not mean that there is nothing we can do about it. In fact, there are many ways to keep the brain active amidst aging. Here are some ways you can make your brain younger:

- Exercise. What does physical exercise have to do with mental health? A lot actually. As per the research conducted by a team of psychologists from the University of Illinois, performing physical activities helps keep the brain active by triggering the creation of new neurons and the production of white matter.

- Keep learning. During your free time, take the chance to learn new things by reading or enrolling in a class. Challenging your brain will help stimulate and exercise your brain’s functioning ability. Just like how muscles need to be stretched and used, so does the brain. So stop idling around and do something productive.

You, however, do not have to do it all at once in a haste. You can start with something small such as a 10-minute walk every day or read a few pages in the afternoon.

It can be quite confusing to come up with a decision on what type of senior living is best for you or a loved one, especially since there are now a lot of options you can choose from. If you have been doing your research thoroughly, you may have come across the term Assisted Living.

Assisted Living is a housing option for the elderly and people with disability wherein they will be provided with nursing, meals and/or housekeeping as needed. This definition, however, is quite general. So to help you determine whether this is the right care option for you, we made a list of questions which can help you evaluate your needs:

- Are you having a difficult time accomplishing bathing and other grooming activities?
- Are you frequently struggling with maintaining your balance?
- Have you suffered from fall-related accidents?
- Have you been skipping meals recently?
- Are you struggling with housekeeping?

If you answered yes to at least three of the questions, then an Assisted Living Facility is what is best for you. If you have further questions about Assisted Living, do not hesitate to call us at 281-469-8800. We will be more than happy to help you navigate through your senior care options.
