If you’re 40 and they’re 70, it’s time to talk
At the center of the “40-70 Rule” is a guide of conversation starters for sensitive aging-related
subjects. The 40-70 Rule Guide features communication tips, as well as role-playing situations that can help family caregivers know what to say and when.
In-home care can help
Often, both adult children and their loved ones can benefit from outside help. Whether it’s a few hours a day or 24-hour long-term care, a CAREGiver can provide companionship and conversation, offer medication reminders, monitor diet and eating, assist with transportation, and much more.
You’re not alone facing this sensitive issue

How do I discuss sensitive subjects with senior family members?
Home Instead CAREGivers are amazing people who really care and become like family…
The Home Instead CAREgiver knew my mom missed the sound of the piano and listening to dad play. I could not believe it when our CAREGiver started taking beginner piano lessons on her days off so she could play the piano for my mom. The joy my mom felt brought tears to my eyes as I watched them laugh and giggle over songs like “Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star” and many fun nights at the piano! I can’t thank Home Instead Senior Care enough for finding me someone to love my mom as much as I do! Ruth is truly amazing and like part of our family! Kathy P., Mentor
Home Instead Senior Care assists the entire family. We make it personal.
I finally had peace of mind with Home Instead Senior Care caring for my mom while I was attending to my career and job demands. They really understood how personal and difficult it was for me to care for mom by myself. Home Instead Senior Care was perfect and the caregivers were highly trained and professional. I am so thankful I was just able to be a daughter again! Thank you Home Instead Senior Care! Beth F. Willoughby

My dad was gradually getting worse. I was not sure I could keep him at home and on top of it he was refusing help from me and everyone!! Home Instead Senior Care came in and knew exactly what to do. They gave me the information, guidance and support to keep dad at home. They even helped me convince him to accept some help. Thanks Home Instead for giving me piece of mind. Patricia L., Kirtland
