Show Appreciation to Your Elderly Loved Ones
We understand how hard it is to show affection and appreciation to your elderly loved ones, especially if you had difficult times in the past, or maybe even in the present, partly because of them. We might be able to form coherent and meaningful sentences in our minds and almost feel like we’re able to tell them everything we feel, but when the time comes to actually say them, we just can’t do it.
Understandably, this is frustrating for us and for them as well! Maybe they’re even facing the same problems you are facing: having difficulty in just finding the right words to say, or just saying them in the first place. That’s why we at Allied Home Health, a skilled nursing facility in Texas, are here to help! We’ve compiled a small list of tips that might help you open up to your loved ones more:
- Allocate more time with them
Spending time with them is the first step to reinvigorating and recovering the possibly damaged relationship with your loved one. Being present both physically and emotionally only serves to make them feel loved (even when you aren’t saying it per se).
- Listen to each other
Of course, when someone actually listens to what you have to say, you’d feel good because you’re being heard out, right? It’s the exact same thing for them, too!
- Make them feel included
Show that they’re still part of the family by including them in social gatherings, family activities, or just plain old conversations around the house.
