Senior Care in Blanchard
When You Feel Guilty Asking For Help
At Visiting Angels® Southwest Oklahoma City we commonly encounter primary caregivers seeking senior care for their loved ones in Blanchard, yet feeling guilty for doing so. These feelings are almost always entirely undeserved and based on a few major underlying faulty beliefs.
A Few Faulty Beliefs That Cause Caregiver Guilt.
I should be able to take care of them myself. Having a sense of duty is commendable, but you can't do everything. The reality is you need to stay as healthy and stress-free as possible in order to continue providing the best care. Accepting outside help is taking a logical step that is doing what’s best for your loved one.
They don’t want anyone else taking care of them. While this may very well be true, again, it’s not going to behoove them if you fall apart from exhaustion. It’s also worth noting that in our experience, even the most reluctant seniors wind up forming a bond with their caregivers and realizing the advantages of having them there to assist.
I shouldn’t spend the money / it’s unaffordable. What better reason could there be for spending money than the care of your aging loved one? Also, senior care may be less expensive than you think and certainly far less expensive than assisted living or a nursing home. Look for a care provider who offers hourly rates and with some careful planning, you may find professional help is more than possible.
