What Will Show Them I Can Take Care of Myself?

There is one argument we hear during so many calls we get at Keeping In Touch Solutions. Mom says she can take care of herself and her daughter thinks she needs help. Each side has their heels dug in and it’s creating tension between them on top of the stress of aging.

We offer a special report that will give daughters (and sons) information about the telltale signs that signal Mom needs a hand. This report has been a real eye-opener for many folks in the sandwich generation.

But now, we want to talk to Mom. When your kids see you aren’t able to do everything you used to do, it can be unnerving to them. You might have been the Super-Mom while they were growing up and it’s hard for them to believe that you can’t leap tall buildings and burn the midnight oil you used to.

There are things you can do to show them that you are still able to take care of yourself. Just like you probably told them as they grew up, actions speak louder than words.

Watch this video. It’s meant to remind you of those things you told your kids were important for them to show they were able to take care of themselves.

Just remember that Keeping In Touch Solutions is here for you and your family as you start to transition into a new chapter of life – for both of you.

A daily check-in call could be the lifeline, the joy you give someone that makes the biggest difference in their perception of what old age is like.

I recently read a statistic that took me by surprise:

While only 25% of the aging parents surveyed report that they are stressed because of their adult children, nearly twice as many adult children report being stressed because of their aging parents.
