Are You Dealing With Aging Parents Who Are Needing More And More Help?

Often, adult children sense this unsettling feeling that all is not well with their ageing parents.  You have an underlying feeling that something is going to happen.  Perhaps it started when you realised that they weren’t entirely sure about which medication when.  Maybe they’ve lost weight and you’re not entirely sure what they’re eating and how meal preparation is going.  But you know that you’re dealing with aging parents who are different than before.

And you have no idea about where to start.

It’s not uncommon.

What is unfortunately not uncommon is that finding the answers to your parent’s individual set of circumstances is unbelievably complex.  There’s a whole world – a whole industry – that you’ve never been exposed to before.  Plus, it’s riddled with complexities about finances: means testing, asset testing, income streams, investments, superannuation annuities, bonds.  These are factors that you are not privvy to and, frankly, nor should you have to.  But navigating this world to make your parents’ lives easier without all the information is very challenging.

Also, you’re likely to be dealing with aging parents who are stoic, who are proud, who are fiercely protective of their independence, who are responding to fears they’ll be “shipped off to a nursing home”.  And that makes your role as the adult child trying to get the best for their parent even more difficult.

Mistakes are made.  Frustration creeps in.  Failure to progress is the result.  And a family is left, sometimes for years, in a sort of limbo where the ageing parents’ needs increase but the solutions don’t follow.
