Posted August 6, 2013

 

You are protecting your loved one’s dignity by wanting to get them the help they need. You may need to have a family conference with their doctor to discuss your loved one’s situation. Often, family members need to hear information from a professional. The whole family does not need to be present—you can do this in a conference call.

If your loved one hasn’t been diagnosed, this would be the first step. Make sure they receive a thorough assessment from a qualified professional. Then share that information with your family. This will allow you to begin to get the help your loved one needs.
