Your Changing Role, Patty Hedrick, RN, @PKHedrick, North Star #ElderCare, #Nurseup #Caregivers

Your Changing Role, Patty Hedrick, RN, @PKHedrick, North Star Elder Care:"Many family members comment that caring for an aging parent feels like a "role reversal." They have become the parent and their parent is the child. There certainly may be similarities in terms of your parent's dependence upon you.

You are likely to run into problems, however, if you try to assume a parental role. Even persons with severe memory loss remember years of independence. They do not respond well to being shut out of decisions or told what to do. Like any adult, they want to be respected."
