How Can I take My Mother’s License?

I wish I had more time to write about this question. I’m helping a family with this very issue and few years back I had to tackle this issue head on with my family.

I found this quick article please enjoy

How to take Mom’s license

Just a few hints;

  1. Every situation and every person is different.
  2. Have Pre-talks with family, Friends and/or Physicians before you present this issue head on. I call it, “Do a little Homework” Beware of landmines that maybe trigger points.
  3. Try not to let it get heated, if it does bring it back to the facts or start the conversation later. Please be care if dementia is involved they may tie emotions to the subject even though they may have forgotten the last time they had the conversation.
  4.  And if possible use your “Code Word” if you and your loved have one. (In a prior blog) Code Word; it’s a word you use when your family member needs to trust your judgement in that moment and later when you are out of the public’s eye or in the heat of conversation you can better explain.

Again, I can’t stress enough each family is different and every journey is slightly different. Please take a deep breath and remember Rome was not built in one day. It was built brick by brick. This is a process.

Stay Inspired,

I'm a southern in my heart and a northern in my soul. I've had a few bad wines, but for the most part I've enjoyed enough good wines that it makes up for the few bad bottles. I enjoy writing, but more than writing itself, I love telling a good story, taking my reader off on an adventure starting with "What If"…. I'm a sucker for the Paranormal Romance genre. To me, its nice to be released from "What Is Expected" and believe for 250 pages in "What If's". Its like a vacation with out passports, waiting in line and an expensive credit card bill when you return home. An additional note: I've started another blog page for Home Care. I know the two are unrelated, but in my world they are. My paying job is 100% dedicated to Home Care and educating families on their new journey. One of my favorite quotes, I leave with all of my clients. "One's destination is never a place, but a new way of seeing things." - by Henry Miller Please Enjoy, but more importantly Stay Inspired…
