How to help your aging family members maintain their independence and autonomy


Caring and attending to the needs of your aging adults shows you love and appreciate them, but you run the risk of helping out a little too much at times. Your elderly may go through periods of grief each time they lose the ability to do certain things, and by over-helping, you’re unwittingly contributing to their sense of loss of independence. Everyone has the right to independence and autonomy, but for older people, the freedom they once enjoyed is often denied because they’re no longer able to make their own decisions. Everyone should have the chance to live with dignity, especially senior populations.
