If you’ve known a senior and cared about them for decades, the chances are their abilities have changed vastly over the years. Whether they’re a parent, friend, or relative, aging takes its toll on all of us. It can be difficult to watch an elderly loved one go through these changes, and even harder for the elderly person themselves.
However, if they are less capable than before, and having more trouble living independently, it may be time to have a serious conversation with them. It’s possible that their safety and well-being is compromised by their continuing to live alone, without the help or supervision they need.
You may be nervous or apprehensive about raising these issues, and that’s okay. Maybe you’ve rehearsed the conversation a dozen or more times in your head, but were never able to follow through. But there is an organization that can help. We’ve walked many individuals through the path you’re on now, and done so with compassion and understanding. We are the Institute on Aging.
