Communication with Elders
“For many elders, there has never been a focus on feelings or emotional difficulty.
Driving“The subject of driving is a “charged” one and sparks can fly. Most older drivers who arelosing their ability to drive safely don’t recognize it or are in denial and can’t face the terrible thought of giving up their independence and control. Yet if you avoid it, every person walking on the street and every driver on the road is put at risk,” said Rosenblatt.
Long-Term Care Solutions “If your parent is in fragile health and seems to be steadily declining physically or mentally, be cautious about choosing an assisted living facility over a nursing home(also known as a skilled nursing facility). No one chooses a nursing home first, butassisted living facilities are not licensed to give nursing care. Nursing homes are morelike hospitals, which they must be to deliver skilled care to frail seniors,” said Rosenblatt.
