About How to Help Aging Parents

We’ve all heard the statistics, the population of people 65 and up is growing – fast. But to read the headlines and hear the reports is vastly different from visiting mom or dad only to discover there is no food in the refrigerator, the house is plastered with little “notes to self” as reminders to do daily tasks, or they haven’t bathed in a while. Often the first challenge of adult children helping our aging parents is to acknowledge that something has changed in their ability to be fully independent in caring for their own needs. Once we see the need for help, it’s not easy to know where to start, especially when there are full time jobs and growing families that occupy each hour of the day. The How to Help Aging Parents ebook provides clear, easy to navigate information on how to know what type of assistance is needed for your aging parents and what services are available in the growing world of elder care ranging from home delivered meals to moving into an assisted living facility.
