Sixty-six year old Mrs. Lo is an Asian woman who has been widowed for 5 years, immigrated to the United States 40 years ago, is in good health and manages her home without any problems. She doesn’t drive nor does she live in an area with public transportation. She is friends with a couple who drive her to church and take her shopping. The couple recently informed her that they will be moving in with their son. Mrs. Lo has a daughter and shares the news about her friends upcoming relocation during a telephone conversation. She mentions that this has caused her to give some thought to her own future. A few weeks later, she receives a call from her daughter who says, “Mom, I think it may be best if you moved. I found a retirement community not far from where I live. I will pay for it. I will come next weekend to take you there to complete the paperwork.” Mrs. Lo is shocked because she never thought of living in a retirement community and believes children are supposed to take care of their parents.
How would you counsel a family when a parent’s traditional views about children’s responsibility for their older parents conflict with the children’s view? If Mrs. Lo’s daughter is unwilling to have her move in with her, what options would you recommend? What options are there for an older adult like Mrs. Lo to make someone aware of her situation so they can assist her in having her preferences expressed and respected? l
