3 Reasons You Get So Angry with Your Loved One’s Mental Health Issues

Caring for a senior who has mental health issues can be one of the hardest challenges someone faces in their life. A family caregiver might be able to face the daily challenges with grace, but sometimes, transferring a loved one into Senior living, Assisted Living or a Nursing Home is necessary. Making the decision to transfer can be exceptionally difficult because caregivers often feel like they should be able to care for their elderly mom or dad.The hardest part is initiating the process. Families often hesitate to call us for help because they feel embarrassed or worried about how their unpredictable loved ones are going to react. You dont have to find a good fit on you own. Stacys Helping Hand, Inc (Senior living) specializes in senior behavioral and mental health care. And, regardless of your situation, we will find a facility where your loved one has compassionate caregivers who can provide the needed support. We empower seniors with mental health issues to take ownership and find purpose in their lives. It is never too late.1. Likely They Had No Therapy or Took MedicationBecause of the time period your loved one was born, their Mental Health issues were likely either undiagnosed, denied or kept behind closed doors due to the stigma attached with a Mental Health diagnosis. Luckily today with modern science, doctors have a better understanding of what neurotransmitters are deficient and modern medicine can help improve their symptoms.2. Manipulation Is Interwoven with SymptomsAnother big factor can be the component of manipulation and using their illness as an excuse. Or they are not even aware of how manipulative they are being. We tell families that if dementia has set in, working through the manipulation may or may not be an option.3. Just Like a Child There Is No Manual to FollowTo put it bluntly, you may be worn out and cant see past the manipulation. It truly is hard to distinguish where the brain chemistry imbalances end and the manipulations begins. Mental health behaviors can be like a rope where you have to unwind the chords.Let Us Help. The First Step Is to Call Us.Your loved needs to help themselves and take ownership for their wellbeing. Asking a 3rd party professional to help your loved one transition can be a lifesaver for you. We can facilitate the process and make it the best experience possible. Each step is another weight off of your shoulders.Our senior care process is flexible for each individuals situation. As we get to know your loved one, you might be surprised by how well they respond to our questions. We have the ability to empower people with mental health issues so that they dont feel threatened. This is partly due to the fact that we are outside of the existing family dynamics, which certainly helps. But its also due to our expertise and approach a little compassion and understanding goes a long way.Our goal is to help your loved one re-discover the kid in themselves. It takes facilities a while to learn your loved ones needs. Most times manipulation is an unmet need, and the need to be in control of something. Unfortunately, the facility may or may not be able to make them happy, but they can have compassion.

Wellness Networks: The Senior Organization Influence on Health

In the pursuit of holistic well-being, the impact of senior organizations on the health of older individuals cannot be overstated. These networks serve as vital hubs for fostering community and connection among seniors, addressing the often underestimated health implications of loneliness and isolation. By organizing educational programs, fitness activities, and mental health support, these organizations empower seniors with the knowledge and resources necessary to take charge of their health. From promoting physical activity tailored to various mobility levels to offering a platform for open discussions on mental health, senior organizations play a crucial role in enhancing the overall quality of life for their members.In addition to their focus on individual well-being, senior organizations also serve as invaluable guides in navigating the complexities of healthcare in later years. By providing assistance with healthcare logistics, organizing screenings, and offering information on insurance options, these networks contribute significantly to ensuring that seniors can access the healthcare resources they need. In essence, wellness networks for seniors become not just support systems, but beacons of empowerment, enriching the lives of their members and positively influencing the health landscape for an aging population.

Why Powers of Attorney Are Important

A power of attorney document, if drafted and used properly, can prevent the need for the court system to become involved in your medical and/or financial affairs. Executing power of attorney documents should be done well in advance of when one may be needed.While there are resources online in and in stores where forms can be purchased, when one is simply plugging a few names and details into a form, you have little control over what that document does, and you might not even understand what it says. Creating your own power of attorney document that is not a form and using specific terms offers you far more protection.The scope of the power of attorney can be broad or it can be very narrow. It can also be for specific for specific accounts and/or specific transactions and purposes. If there is a concern about someone abusing the power of attorney document, the more detailed and restrictive your terms are, the harder it will be for someone to misuse the authority granted to them in a power of attorney for financial gain.Talking about your assets and what protection you need from a power of attorney with a lawyer can help you create documents well-suited for your needs. While there is more cost involved up front, the end product is something that protects you and your interests without leaving you vulnerable the way that broadly worded documents might.Editor's Note: This article was submitted by Tamara E.
