Why is it so difficult for the elderly to give up their independence?

    Thank you for your comment. Everyone should be accorded dignity, that includes the elderly. The elderly need understanding and loving care. They may have to be reasoned with extensively when a change of location or care is needed.

    Thank you very much for your insight. I agree that the elderly should be independent as long as possible, but when they can no longer take care of themselves, then it is time to take charge and make the needed changes for their health and safety.
