Care recipient (cr) often resists the caregiver caregiver’s cg cg’s suggestions

Try: #the cr may automatically dig in his or her heels as a defense to feeling threatened challenged or ordered around resistance may also be triggered by feelings of confusion or a sense of having limited control #try to rephrase what you say and how you say it so that it doesn’t sound as if you are bossing the cr around for example instead of saying you need to take your bath now fill the tub with bathwater and say would you like to take a bath now so the water won’t be wasted the cr may not want to waste anything and take the bath without further resistance #compromise when possible while you probably have needs as a cg for things to happen at certain times and in certain ways be selective about which activities you want to be rigid respecting the cr cr’s ability to choose when and how various activities will take place respects his or her independence #if the cr resists something the first time you suggest it consider dropping the request and bringing it up at a later time sometimes the passage of time diffuses the cr cr’s resistance to an idea
