How to Say It to Seniors: Closing the Communication Gap With Our Elders
Talking with older adults - especially about important matters - can be frustrating. Perhaps they tend to fret over inconsequential details, or simply cut the conversation short before anything has been resolved. In How to Say It to Seniors, geriatric psychology expert David Solie offers help in removing the typical communication blocks we have with the elderly. By sharing his insight into the later stages of life, Solie helps us understand the unique perspective of seniors, and gives us the tools to relate to them.
-Gain trust and cooperation
-Offer assistance without taking over
-Understand their need for legacy
-Learn how to listen and what to listen for
This book explodes the 'myth of diminished capacity' in our elders and offers a new way to interpret their behaviors. It also illuminates the enormity of the psychological journey the elderly face and how we can help them understand it.
"It's simply the best book on the subject I've read...Respect, love, sympathy, and cheer shine out of his writing and text. I read it in one sitting, and found myself in tears. Why didn't I have this book when my mother was still alive?"
-Erica Bell, Amazon.com review
