Caring for aging parents without losing your job, yourself, or your mind
How do you navigate the push-pull that helping or caring for aging parents can cause physically, mentally, emotionally, and financially? Have you felt overwhelmed, confused, or alone as a primary or part-time caregiver or from afar? There's a lot to know and manage. As an adult child, there are ways to prepare and conversations with your parents to help make this challenging time a little more manageable. Kim & Mike share personal experiences with Alzheimer's, scams & hospitalizations while stressing that it's never too early to start planning.
