Boundaries: When to Say Yes, How to Say No

Health & Wellness  |  March 24, 2021

Setting Boundaries

In Session Five of our Together We! Thrive series, our speaker Ayla Cook, Senior Care Specialist, discussed the topic of boundaries. COVID-19 has increased the demand for services for those in support or caregiving roles. By practicing healthy boundary setting, we are able to better manage our tasks, our care for others and our self-care. Watch the live recording on Facebook, where you can watch the discussion about how to use boundaries to create positive interactions with others and build healthy rules for ourselves.

What are Boundaries?

Boundaries are limits we set in order to create a healthy sense of personal space. They help us identify where we end and others begin. They also help us identify responsibilities that do and don’t belong to us.

5 types of boundaries include:

Personal: Focuses on limits we set for ourselves and others we are in relationship with.

Financial: Limitations around financial interactions.

Professional: Help prevent line between person’s career and personal from becoming blurred.

Time: Assist with determining how much of your personal, professional, and physical resources you would like to offer.

Physical: Protect our body, privacy, and personal space.

"Clermont Park is a great place to live. You can participate as much or as little as you want in community activities. You can meet as many people as you like, and they are generally open, so I’ve made a lot of friends in the short time I’ve been here. "
