Reconciliation Day: Navigating Caregiving and the Transition to Senior Care
For families, thinking about the transition to senior care is not easy, especially when conflict may be part of the family dynamic.
Caregiving stress and the lack of knowledge about care solutions can trigger a host of difficult emotions in caregivers, including anger, fear, resentment, guilt, helplessness and grief. This may not only cause internal turmoil but also issues with the person being cared for.
In observance of Reconciliation Day, remember the importance of acknowledging and accepting your feelings and those of your loved one. As we share in our “Reactions to Caregiving” handout, These feelings don't mean that you resent your family member — they simply mean you're human.
When navigating the transition to senior care amidst family conflict, remember, reconciliation is an imperative step in ensuring the best transition to care possible. For support and resources, download our “Reactions to Caregiving” handout here. [Link to PDF file].
