Should I allow my elderly relative space to vent anger?

Allowing Anger

Allowing a Senior or person with disabilities to open up and express their feelings to a listening ear will undoubtedly release thoughts of fear, anger, needs, desires etc.

Never diminish these feelings by telling them they shouldn`t feel a certain way. How they are feeling is simply how they are feeling for whatever reason. Instead offer words of encouragement, mention positive alternatives and carefully offer advice on community programs or assistance.
