There comes a time in life when it is difficult to live independently, and homes of many years and many memories must be left behind. But despite the commonness of this life-changing transition, little has been written on how to prepare one's loved ones or oneself for the challenge. Full of empathy and the wisdom of experience, in Learning to Let Go Penelope Wilcock guides us through the process - practical and emotional - of preparing for residential care, tackling the difficult questions which will be faced by elderly people, and their families. How can families and staff offer the best care? What are the marks of a well-run home? What attitudes should you expect from the staff of a good home? This book shows how an elderly person can be helped to retain their identity, and at the same time to "let go".
