We all know our parents are getting older, but quite often we don’t actually realize it until something happens. That something is usually a health event of some kind, a fall, a broken bone, a heart attack or perhaps the onset of a chronic health condition that starts affecting the quality of life. In many cases this seems like a sudden occurrence but usually we just failed to see the warning signs so we are caught off guard. Then we are left with a crisis or impending crisis.
Our five part “How do I cope with aging parents” blog series provides you and your family with important insights for preparing yourself and your parents as they age.
- Part 1: Educate yourself and take stock
- Part 2: Reassure your parents and help them retain control
- Part 3: Think creatively
- Part 4: Get counselling
- Part 5: Make small changes but take some risks
The process of aging can be scary for everyone involved. We encourage you to be proactive, get educated, and talk to senior care professionals about important resources and support that are available to you.
