Thank you for the opportunity to help you with your question! IF you have any clarification, please don't hesitate to ask and I will do my best to answer.
Any person, old or young, would
have a hard time processing and accepting the fact their mental abilities are
declining; hence as a human services professional helping an aging client
acknowledge their own decreasing mental abilities, I would NOT directly tell
them that their mental abilities are in a decline. I would rather tell my aging
client that his body and therefore, health is in decline which is a direct
consequence of his or her aging. That this decline necessitates that he gets
help in his or her day to day living. As for his or her family, I would tell
them the same thing as well in addition to the fact that the client’s mental
abilities may decline as well as a result of his aging body.
Please let me know if you need any clarification. I'm always happy to answer your questions.
