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:

Legal & Financial Issues

  1. Be sure legal documents are in order and understood by family
  2. Living will, will itself, and power of attorney
  3. Understanding of parent(s) financial status including insurance, resources, and needs
  4. What needs to be done to meet everyone’s needs
