Did You Know That Elders Also Need Constant Companion?

Although elderly depression exhibits warning signs and symptoms, many of us still fail to notice it. Why? Because we think that its signs and symptoms are just normal in old age. Untreated depression can complicate your elder's health and well-being. How do we help them? By giving them a constant companion.

Sometimes, all your senior loved one needs is someone who can stay by their side. We fully understand if you cannot do it all the time. Of course, you also have your own needs to attend to, like your work.

3 Statements That Can Lower Your Senior Loved One's Self-Worth

When talking to your senior loved one, you have to be cautious of your words. Here are some statements you should avoid saying:

1. "Is that really hard to understand?"

Elders may need more time to process new information. Be patient.

2. "You are too old for that."

This will only discourage your loved one from doing what they love.

3. "You are such a pain."

Do not say this, even as a joke. Your loved one may think they are a burden to you.
