On Tuesday morning, Anna Stookey joined me for our monthly chat on Your Caregiving Journey. On this show, we discussed this question: How do I make a decision that could be right for me but perhaps wrong for my caree? You can listen to our show via the player, below. (Note: You’ll hear that I wasn’t feeling well during our show–I’m better today–and we lost Anna at the end of the show because her phone battery ran out.)
Anna and I spoke about the decision to place your caree in a long-term care facility. For a variety of reasons, the decision may be right because it means your caree will receive the care needed and it means you receive more help. From your caree’s perspective, the decision may just simply be wrong, wrong wrong.
Have you been in a similar situation? Have you made a decision that you knew was right but your caree resented? Please share your experiences in our comments section, below.
