Helping Your Parent at Home Without Taking Away Their Independence
For so many of us, life is all about trying to control as much of the unknown as we can. Of course, so much of the unknown is out of our control, so the concept itself seems futile, but there is a sense of calm and ease when there is a routine in place; when things are done properly, it can leave less room for error. But that only goes so far.
For example, the routine that we think is best for ourselves may not actually be best for our children or our spouses. And the conflicts that can arise from the battle to control the things around us can be stressful and detrimental to relationships. This is also true for those caring for the elderly at home.
