How to Care for Your Aging Parents

Big A and Wally
Jan 23, 2024

"They don’t look at things as rationally as they did when they were younger. It’s a difficult conversation to have." The signs of our parents' aging may be subtle, but they're a wake-up call we unfortunately can't ignore (or at least, we shouldn't).

Big A and Wally exchange heartfelt stories about the undercurrent of concern for our parents as everyone gets older. We discuss the delicate balance between stepping in to help and respecting the independence of our loved ones.

Key Takeaways:

  • What questions you should ask your parents NOW
  • When do you know it's time to intervene?
  • What if you don't have a good relationship with them?

It's time to step up and have the courage to ask our parents about their will and healthcare directives. We exchange perspectives on the difficult yet necessary discussions about end-of-life preparations, emphasizing how these conversations protect the fabric of our family relationships from potential strain when they're gone.

The journey of supporting aging parents is multifaceted, touching on emotional care, maintaining connections, and when to seek professional guidance. Our conversation ventures into the importance of consistent communication, the healing power of forgiveness, and the roles that hobbies and community engagement play in keeping our parents mentally active.
