Asking an older adult what kind of assistance they would like goes a long way in increasing their comfort and reducing frustration. Simple acts such as offering a blanket or sweater can make a huge difference in the comfort of an older adult. It is important you don’t rush older adults, allow plenty of time for visits or appointments to decrease anxiety.
