Description

“Am I doing the right thing?” “I work full-time — how can I be in two places at once?” “Who’s going to pay for Mom’s home care?” “How do I bring up sensitive subjects like their money, moving, and not driving?” “Do we need long-term-care insurance?” “Wait! Do I really want Dad to move in?” “Where do my parents keep their legal documents?” “Do they have a will?” Caring for elderly loved ones can be a full-time job–on top of regular work and family responsibilities.
