Part 3 – Caring for Aging Parents

Last in a 3-part series from the archives of January 2017.

In earlier editions of TGIF 2 Minutes I delved into the topic of “Caring For Aging Parents”. It may seem like overkill to read a “Part 3”, but ask anyone who is in the midst of coordinating care for a parent or spouse if they wish they had gotten advice sooner. Heck, these days even neighbors and friends are enlisted to check in on a 93-year old down the street. Experts in long-term care insurance cite the emotional strain on family members — that can leave a family member or friend in need of serious or costly medical care for themselves after years of caring for others.
