The presence of family members during medical investigations is an intensely debated topic for which pros and cons have been launched. Arguments referred to the opinion of the public, patients, their families, as well as medical staff and researchers.
Research has focused both on ethical issues- related to patient autonomy, their right to build the entire bio-psycho-medical context to regain health, and the right of the family to get involved in patient recovery- and psychological issues- reducing the level of the patient’s psycho-physical distress by the presence of family who properly understands the situation. There are also political considerations such as reducing litigation by eliminating family doubt about the efforts of medical staff and the decisions they make during difficult situations.
When it comes to aging and people who need assisted living, the support of family and loved ones is very important. Certain diseases can incapacitate patients’ ability to express themselves, communicate with the medical staff, and their awareness of their conditions. It is therefore important to work with the geriatric specialists at assisted living facilities in Denver to help your loved ones cope with mental health issues. This collaboration must be based on regular communication and information from both parties, as well as on empathy and full support.
