Prepare for Adult Care

Preparing to care for an aging parent or family member is not always possible. When it is, we recommend you learn as much as you can about your parents’ needs and wishes before a crisis arises.

Here are some issues that may be helpful to discuss with your aging parent or family member:

Personal Goals

  1. Thoughts about what remaining independent means
  2. Different stages of aging, and effect on them & you
  3. Goals & dreams they would still like to achieve
  4. Location to family & friends
  5. Health as it pertains to their future independence
