How can I convince my elderly mother to go to senior daycare?


Answer by  Mgarcia (752)

Be gentle and understanding, she has been independent all her life. You need to kindly remind her of instances where she has put herself and others in danger. Help her see what advantages a daycare has for her, friends, easy meals, companionship.

The best thing you can do is listen to your mother: ask her how she sees it. Respond to her concerns, making sure you understand what it would be like for her there. Then pose going as an experiment; if the experiment goes well she can continue. If not, find another way to assure she has a good, safe day.
