How Will Your Family Care for Elderly Parents?

older men conversing Is your 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:

  •  Communication - 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.
  •  Understanding Needs - Striking a balance between "not enough" and "too much" help. Using outside resources to bring specialized services or a needed break for family caregivers.
  •  Plan and Budget Decisions - Blending family and community resources to provide help and to enhance quality of life. Managing paid services to fit the elderly parent's needs and budget.
