Respect Your Needs

Be honest with your parents about

your time and energy limits. Be upfront

about the impact on your personal

time and needs. Discuss the current

state of affairs and a future plan in a

casual manner.

Approach the subject of your

parents’ needs in simple terms. They

understand the scope of their care

needs and talking about the process

can help defuse the tension. Once you

open the lines of communication, you

can begin to map a strategy that will

work for everyone.

Talking Points

Some examples of talking points are


• The lack of quality time together with

your parent.

• Note the physical demands of personal

care and how it impacts you.

• Define what you can and can’t do.

• Discuss your daily routine so they

understand how their care needs may

affect you.

• Draw parallels to a time in your parents’

lives when they felt overwhelmed and

had no help.

• Reaffirm your goal to get the best

possible care for your parent.
