Once again, our CEO and co-founder of Home Instead Senior Care has been featured in a prominent publication.
This time, Woman’s Day magazine features Paul Hogan in an article entitled, “How to Care for Aging Parents: try these strategies to make helping Mom and Dad less stressful.”
There are literally millions of baby boomers who are caring for their aging parents. If you happen to be one of them, this article contains some helpful advice such as:
- Be Prepared
- Explore the Options
- Think Twice about Relocation
- Talk Money
- Ask for Help
A elderly parent’s sudden stroke or fall can alter an adult child’s life quickly, so it’s important to have the caregiver conversation when everything is still fine. Use the 40/70 rule, suggests Paul Hogan, coauthor of Stages of Senior Care. When you’re 40 or your parents are 70, talk to them about their preferences.
For additional tips on caring for your aging parent, you can download the 40/70 brochure here: The 40-70 Rule: A Guide to Conversation Starters for Boomers and their Senior Loved Ones.
