The Journey with our Mom and Dad is going to be different than the one you'll have with your parents.   However, what is the same are our needs as Caregivers - information, resources and someone to guide us.

That feeling of not knowing what you are looking for is normal for Caregivers.    There weren't any prep classes for this in college nor was any of this mentioned throughout our childhood.    

The problem isn't your situation or your parents.   The issue lies within the eldercare industry.   Most of the information is targeted at the senior demographic or the aging baby boomer population.   

 

Here's a reality check.   They might have been saving and planning for retirement but it is us as their adult children who are putting those plans into motion.
