Getting Started
Replacing Nerves with Verve

Getting started comes down to two things. One of them, of course, is taking that first step. The other thing, which is just as important, is changing your focus. This chapter tries to answer the questions you may have about doing something you haven’t done before. It points out the experience you do have that you can draw on, and describes some techniques you can use to make both you and your loved one comfortable.

Questions You May Have

“It’s so hard to go visit. I never know what to expect. How can I prepare?”
There are so many times in life when we don’t know what to expect. A boss can throw a curve ball in a meeting. A pitcher can throw a curve ball in a game. A child can ask a challenging or embarrassing question. If we relax, we can think on our feet. If we have a good answer, we provide it. If we don’t, we can say we don’t know. As for preparing, the best thing to do is breathe deeply, clear your mind, and go in open to whatever happens.

“How do I clear my mind?”
Just sit quietly, maybe in your car, for a minute or two before going in. It’s amazing how long 60 or 120 seconds can be. It’s amazing what can be accomplished in that amount of time. You can change your focus, slow your breathing, relax your muscles, change from a “get things done” mentality to a “let’s see what happens” mentality.

“If the person I’m visiting asks a question I’m unprepared for, what can I say?”
It depends on the question. This is no different from other situations in life. Sometimes it’s something you know, like the time or the day. Sometimes it’s something you can find out, such as what’s being served for dinner or how much longer until it will be served. Just offer to find out, and go do so and report back, or offer to go together to find out. Sometimes, you might have to say that you’ll find out later, and let him know. This works with factual information. But some questions may require answers he can’t comprehend or doesn’t want to hear. This is a judgment call, depending on how he reacted before, on how far the disease has progressed, on what kind of answer you think he expects and, most importantly, on what your own intuition tells you.
