How to Deal With the Guilt of Putting a Loved One in a Nursing Home
When it's a parent or other relative, the guilt can be hard – get help with hypnosis
Whether it’s your mother or father or some other relative you have to place in a nursing home, it’s a terribly tough decision and can leave you plagued by guilt.
Even if you don’t get along with the person in question, seeing anyone you have known for a long time frail and in need of care can be heart wrenching.
And the moment when you take them to the nursing home and leave them can leave you feeling guiltier than ever.
“But they did so much for me”
It is common for people to recall how parents looked after and cared for them, and so feel they should be doing the same for their parents rather than placing them in the care of others.
Although you may feel sad at committing your relative to a nursing home, right decisions have to be right for every body. Guilt is an emotion that serves no purpose in the long term.
How hypnosis can help you deal with the guilt
The trouble with the guilt of putting a parent or other loved one in a nursing home is that it can be never-ending. Every time you visit them it’s refreshed, renewed, visiting you late at night or whenever you’re feeling tired or low.
And the fact that the guilt is not going away is a sign that you could do with a new way of approach the whole issue.
Dealing with Nursing Home Guilt is a gentle, permissive hypnosis session will get you feeling more objective and detached about the whole process which will enable you to be more humane.
The session won’t make you care less but it will enable you to feel calmer about the inevitable and stop making things harder for yourself by feeling like a ‘bad person.’
