Finding Resources to Care for Our Aging Parents
For many of us boomers, caring for our aging parents is part of our everyday life. I am fortunate enough to have a sister and brother to help divide the responsibilities, but many people have to oversee their parents' care on their own.
Overseeing the care of an aging parent can come with a variety of concerns and responsibilities, not to mention stress. One of the first steps is to try to enlist other family members and friends to help with various aspects of care. It can be as simple as helping with laundry or dropping off a meal every other week. Don't try to do it all on your own.
