1. Figure out which family member(s) need, or should have the conversation with your parent ie: which adult child might they listen to.

2. Start slowly with caregiving hours. It’s likely your loved one could use more “hours”, but overwhelming a parent with new faces can build resistance.

3. Talk to your parent about their fears. Seniors feel as if extra help around the home will decrease their independence, but it often allows for more independence.

4. Use the “Let’s just try it for a little while” method. Insist that nothing is permanent.
