Interview with Dan Taylor, author of the book The Parent Care Solution: A Legacy of Love...
Dan Taylor, author of the book The Parent Care Solution, says it's important for children to talk to their elderly parents about what will happen should they become ill. Where their important documents are and where their assets are.
The goal of this talk is to let your parents design their care future instead of letting them default and you default to a situation that neither party has planned for. You see, this is not a situation that we have the option of dealing with. We either have to deal with this situation with our parents or as parents either by design or default.
A lot of elderly parents will go to great lengths to avoid this conversation. It's just not something they want to talk about, and unfortunately most people never have this conversation.
But the fact of the matter is if you don't have this conversation, you get to have lots of unpleasant conversations because of it.
