Almost everyone has or will have to provide some sort of care or assistance to elderly members of their family. Sometimes it can become difficult and stressful to provide care to our elderly loved ones. You often may have questions about how you are going to find the time or energy to care for them on top of everything else going on in life. Not to mention the fact that many times you try to help they refuse it. At Nancy's Counseling Corner in Orange County, we can help you and your family learn to better communicate and care for elderly members of your family.
Dealing with an aging or sick loved one can often result in difficult and stressful situations for families. Some examples include:
I have experience working in the geriatric field through elder care counseling. And, more importantly, I have personally faced this very situation in my own family. My grandmother was diagnosed with Alzheimer's and I was a part of her care giving team and helped my family to develop a plan of action. It is a heart wrenching, difficult, guilty feeling, emotionally, physically, and spiritually draining experience.
Elder care counseling provides resources and coping skills to learn to help you do more than just "survive the experience." These resources and skills will help you and those around you better cope with the tough issues of aging. It can also help your loved one deal with their emotions more healthily and find new enjoyment even late in life. Elder care counseling may also be able to help identify certain geriatric conditions and help guide you and your family in the right direction of a sound plan of action.
You do not have to go through this alone. Call to schedule your appointment for effective elder care counseling today at 949.510.9423.
