My own parents are ageing — as are the parents of so many of my friends. There are a handful of people here in Australia who are full time carers for one or both parents and have been unable to come for auditing as a consequence. I know it is the same elsewhere too.
I was recently reviewing the LRH references that pertain to this circumstance and came up with a list of things that can help provide some guidance. I have not listed the source for each — as most are self explanatory. This is also not a complete list, so please feel free to include additional points if you spot some.
- The Way to Happiness – respect for your parents, care for your parents
- Assists for aches and pains; touch assists, body comm, (plus many more in the Assist pack)
- Medication oversight (this is a key one as it appears that some tend to end up on a load of medications plus self medication (alcohol)
- Keep them busy/active as much as their mobility permits.
- Work to have them complete cycles of action.
- Maintaining their self determinism and personal choice
- Self analysis is a great way to improve perceptics and recall
- Straightwire processing on times of past inhibited or enforced affinity, inhibited or enforced communication, inhibited or enforced reality.
- Running pleasure moments to raise tone and key out bank.
- For heavy drinkers – locationals
There is also the conversation that occurs at the end of a person’s body life, where you help them to complete cycles of action/wrap up those things that attention are on. And a straight conversation that it is OK to move on.
I have 4 elderly parents (mum and my step-father, father and my step-mother). Of the 4 people, 2 are in good health and 2 are in a constant decline of health issues, injuries and problems. I have not lost any yet — though undoubtedly in the next several years at least one will be unable to continue physically.
I hope the above is helpful for those that read here.
It was a useful exercise for me.
