Mistake 1: “The best solution for my parents is to move to a nursing home“
a. We see that only very rarely other options are properly considered – let alone that other options are actually known.
b. Very rarely the parents themselves are properly involved in the discussion.
c. An open conversation about matters like „illness“, „old aged care”, „passing away” within families seldom, if ever, takes place.
(Hoping: „If we don’t talk about it, it doesn’t exist“.)
