Elderly Care: Learning to Reframe Regret in Later Life

In an effort to provide exceptional elderly care and senior services at Hart2Heart, I regularly attend conferences. Last week I traveled to San Francisco to present two research posters at the American Psychological Association’s National Conference and found myself attending a panel with famed existential psychologist Dr. Irvin Yalom. A preeminent scholar-practitioner of the 21st century, Dr. Yalom wrote several New York Times best-selling books, including the seminal text for group psychotherapy, and most recently, his memoir.

I’ve had the privilege of hearing Dr. Yalom speak at several conferences over the years but this was qualitatively different; he is now 87. He discussed his life and famed career from the mountain top – looking out over his many accomplishments. Yet, the most emotionally stirring part of his talk was his disclosure that despite his successes across the lifespan, he still had unfinished emotional business from his past. Recalling a recent experience with a client’s childhood trauma, Dr. Yalom found himself staring at pictures of his own childhood home in the background; his family-of-origin in the fore.  Out of nowhere, he reported, tears began to flow. Dr. Yalom asked himself, “where are these tears coming from?”

Sitting in the audience I found myself considering the older adults I work with at Hart2Heart in Scottsdale and throughout Arizona, and the tears that frequently flow from the reservoir of regret.
