family able to communicate well about your elderly parents
and their needs? Are you concerned about sharing the work
fairly, or outside resources for personal care? Families may
face three common issues:
- Differing perspectives by elderly parents and adult children.
The elderly don't want to be a "burden," but may
need assistance. Adult children may try to take over; others
just "take off," leaving someone else to pick
up the load.
Needs - Striking a balance between "not enough"
and "too much" help. Using outside resources to
bring specialized services or a needed break for family
and Budget Decisions - Blending family and community resources

paid services to fit the elderly parent's needs and budget.
