CHAPTER 1 6. Be patient


Take it one step at a time, making allowances for them feeling overwhelmed, anxious or out of their comfort zone. You might find it helpful to jot down the key points of the conversation afterwards for them to mull over in their own time. Although your conversation may raise many practical things that need attending to, remember that what people really care about in later life is not so much their domestic affairs as their relationships with family and friends.


So go ahead, have that vital conversation. Saying what you need to say, in the right way, will give you peace of mind and could go a long way to helping your loved one build a sense of serenity and real joy in their later life.
