Senior Care in Skiatook
When You Feel Guilty Asking For Help
Are you considering professional senior care for your Skiatook area loved one but hesitating due to feelings of guilt? Caregiver guilt is a real and relatively common phenomenon. At Visiting Angels® Bartlesville, we’re very familiar with this issue and would like to offer some insight that will hopefully help you understand that it is, in almost every case, entirely undeserved.
Caregiver Guilt Might Come From Misguided Beliefs
Caregiver guilt is always due to some faulty beliefs that start out as good intentions. For example, the two most common ones we hear are:
It’s my job to handle my loved one’s needs. It is entirely unrealistic to think that one person could or should be able to take on all the ever-increasing needs of an aging loved one.
They don’t want outside help. This is also very common. As we age, we begin to sense that we are more vulnerable and so resist or even become suspicious of anyone outside the family. It’s important to recognize that while not unfounded, this feeling is not a logical excuse for not seeking professional help from an accredited provider. In most cases, simply explaining to your loved one that you really need this support for your own well-being helps them be open to the idea.
