exist, and there IS one near you.
Now, lauralei, please tell me what you would do if your client took to ringing a bell at you at every whim?
PROFESSIONAL like lauralei know how to get patients past that "Can I still cause an effect on my environment?" insecurity that tends to manifest in making loved ones hop for our entertainment. It is not about being mean or ignoring them, it is helping them to feel secure that you WILL be there when they DO need you, to a level where they stop wondering if you will show up when they ring the bell THIS time... It is hard to become an old person, start losing your independence, start needing care from people you always were responsible to care for...
"Tough love" some call it, but you have to "set boundaries" to borrow a bit of psychobabble.
Love or fear? Choose again with every breath.
