When They Think They Don’t Need Help

What do you do when the person living with dementia clearly needs help, and says, “I don’t need your help”! Yet, it is quite clear they do need help to be able to live safely and with the dignity they deserve. What do you do? How do you convince them? Do we really want or need to do that? Is this the best way to manage this situation? It can be so frustrating! Hurtful words can be said on both sides of this issue and I’ll share with you ways to provide the care they need without offending your loved one.  Let’s work with them and not work against ourselves. Tune in and learn more. 

After this session you may still find yourself needing help. My audiobook can be on your standby to help. You can purchase it here at Rachaelwonderlin.com/Products.
