Remember the Three E’s when Approaching Senior Care Conversations

Having senior care conversations can seem daunting. However, there are ways to approach and have these conversations that can put everyone involved at greater ease.

  1. Start EARLY - this helps to ease anxiety, stress, and worry instead of waiting until an emergency situation arises
  2. Show EMPATHY - put yourself in their shoes and have the conversation in a way that shows caring and compassion
  3. ENGAGE others - keep your loved one, other seniors, and trusted professionals such as doctors and social workers engaged in the process

As always, the staff at Perry Lutheran Home is here for you to answer any questions about any stage of senior care from your home to ours.
