How To Talk With Your Aging Parents About Using A Walker (NAPS)--Caring for an aging par- ent can be a great challenge. And as our beloved seniors age, their primary caregivers, commonly their children, need to initiate many difficult conver- sations. Whether it's suggesting the use of a hearing aid or simply talking about any other assistive device that has to do with getting older, starting these conver- sations isn't easy. One of the toughest conversations may be to convince your parent to use a mobility aid. Over time, it may become indreasingly obvious that Mom or Dad is having more trouble walking without assistance. For so many older adults, the *** very thought of relying on a walker to I'm living so far beyond my income that we may almost be said to be living get around is unappealing. While this apart, may be emotionally difficult to accept, --e. e. cummingsit's going to require some getting used to. *** Suggesting the use of a walker can often be met with a parent's stubborn refusal. Now is the time to have the con- versation about love, continued safety and well-being. It's important~to use this conversation time to express empathy and understanding and to focus on the positives The right walker or rollator will offer your aging parents greater in- dependence, comfort and possibly even keep them active, self-sufficient and better connected to the family and their friends.

Motivo Tour offer a contemporary de- sign with styling that can't be ignored. 3. Stress the importance of being smart: Using a walker will prevent falls and resulting injuries. The facts are on your side and fall-related injuries may actually come with a discharge recom- mendation to a nursing home rather than Mom's return home. A conversation like this is a two- way street, so if you're able to address their reluctance, then your parents will also need to embrace their own physical limitation. It's important that you don't make an absolute demand that they use a walker, so partner up and search for options together. Mom might feel better if she's able to see a less institutional-looking option, and a rollator like the Motivo Tour, with its risk-free 30-day trial, is a smart way to give a ~ket~ try."
