As our parents age, we might begin to notice changes.
Do they seem a little wobbly on their feet? Did they forget that important date? Are things just a little dustier at home? Didn’t they just ask that question ten minutes ago?
These concerns make adult children begin to wonder; at what point should they step in? But there are many things to consider here.
The desire of adult children to fix things can make parents feel criticised, patronised or at risk of losing their independence. The most important thing to keep in mind when navigating these situations is open, honest communication. Any changes (unless the parent has serious cognitive issues) should be decided together.
As positive child/parent relationships can be vital for good health and longevity for older adults, sometimes getting a third party to help with basic tasks and monitor any changes can reduce stress and pressure for everyone.
