I spoke to my contact a few days ago…and he couldn’t say enough positive things about my talk. He brought tears to my eyes when he described his sister. She had a stroke and she is resistant to working on getting better.
This hurts when I hear somebody tells me this. It hurts knowing this loved one wants his sister to get better, but she refuses. What can he do? You can make suggestions, you can make it fun, and you can introduce games to make the exercises more interesting.
But when it is all said and done…. I am sorry to say it really is all up to the individual to WANT get better. You can hope, wish and pray, but really that’s all you can do. Don’t beat yourself up!
