Here’s a great blog regarding decision making. Very true words of wisdom. Thanks Kathy!
I often write about the things that we can do to help our parents manage the changes in their care needs. There are always many things that can be recommended to ease some of the challenges that a senior might face and we should surely be on the lookout for any signs that somebody may be failing on their own.
But one thing that I feel equally strongly about and need to express is the right of all seniors to self-determination.
Though I may have lots of ideas about how I think things should be done and how best to do them, as long as my parent is able to still make decisions, I must allow them to do so. I have said before about safety being one of the measures for how forcefully to intervene. But baring dire safety issues, Mom and Dad still get to choose.
