an Elderly Loved One to Communicate
Some feel uncomfortable about aging in today’s society
and many elderly people do not openly communicate feelings, wants, and needs.
Encouraging communication between an elderly loved one and caregivers can
help to prevent or eliminate many problems in the future.
For example, encouraging communication may help an elderly loved one
discuss urinary incontinence problems with a caregiver and, in turn, find a
solution for the incontinence. By
encouraging communication between an elderly loved one and the staff of a
skilled nursing facility, the family is helping to prevent feelings of isolation
and depression in an elderly loved one. When
an elderly loved one is newly admitted to a skilled nursing facility,
encouraging communication can help the elderly loved one feel more at ease in
the new environment and acclimate more quickly.
Encouraging communication between an elderly loved one and the caregivers
is an excellent way to ensure that a higher standard of care is maintained.
Families should understand the importance of encouraging communication
between family and the staff of a skilled nursing facility, as well.
Effective, open communication between all parties involved will help to
create a more positive environment for the elderly loved one.
By encouraging communication between an elderly loved one and caregivers,
a range of negative psychological and physical side-effects can be avoided.
