Explaination

Dealing with the loss of independence is a predominant struggle which patients who have to rely on others for assistance tend to have.  This loss affects their personality and overall outlook.  By participating in their own care and activities, your patients will feel a great advancement in their mood.  You don’t want to add pressure on the patient, so do not make them full accountable for everything.  They definitely need your support.  Therefore, allow them to participate but not for the reason to create less tasks for the nursing assistant.
