Have you talked to your parents about long term care planning? Many children have not because they don’t even realize the importance of care planning, that is until an emergency occurs and they’re swept into the middle of the crises. It is unfortunate, but sometimes it takes a personal experience to make one accept or appreciate the need to plan ahead. On the other hand, some parents don’t want to have the discussion. If you find yourself in this place, join my weekly radio broadcast on Sundays 10-11am on 630 KHOW called Parenting Your Parents at www.parentingyourparentsradio.com Here we talk about opening up the conversation with your parents about caregiving and related issues.
