When You Feel Guilty Asking For Help

Our senior care team often encounters new clients/primary caregivers who know they need help, yet still feel guilty asking for it. At Visiting Angels® in the Tri-Cities and Walla Walla we’d like to share a few faulty beliefs that underlie these feelings of guilt to help you overcome them.

Top Three Faulty Beliefs Behind Caregiver Guilt

  • I should be able to handle their care myself. No one person can handle all the ever-increasing needs of an aging loved one–not without one or several other areas of their life or health suffering. Ask yourself, if something happens to you, where will they be then?
  • I shouldn’t spend the money, or it’s not affordable. If your loved one has any money put aside, you have to wonder, what better reason could there be to spend it if not on care that helps them continue living safely at home, where they want to be? As far as affordability, compared to assisted living or nursing home care, in-home senior care is far more accessible. Many agencies, such as ours, also offer hourly rates and flexible payment options.
  • They don’t want an outsider coming in. It’s not uncommon for aging adults to feel vulnerable and therefore suspicious of outsiders or embarrassed. Our clients are usually quickly reassured when they see the level we go to, to thoroughly vet and choose our professional caregivers. Of course, we’re also locally insured and bonded. It’s also very common for even the most hesitant seniors to wind up forming a close bond with their caregiver and seeing the advantages to having them there.
