Caring for Your Aging Parents

Are you the primary sibling who bears the burden of care for your parents?

Are you concerned about whether your parents’ finances are being handled properly?

Do you think your parents should consider alternative living arrangements (such as assisted living), but they refuse?

Are you doing your best to respect your parents’ independence and wishes but just feel overwhelmed by the responsibility?

In deciding what’s best for your parents, do you feel like you and your siblings are kids again, bickering and driving each other nuts?

If you answered yes to any of these questions, you are not alone! 1 in 4 adult children over the age of 50 in America provide personal care or financial assistance to an aging parent. That’s over 10 million people, and yet, it can feel like a very lonely place to be. There are some great resources out there, like www.AgingCare.com, but it’s also nice to have someone in person with you every step of the way.

At Edwards Group, we are here to help with decisions, planning, documents, even helping families work out the hard to discuss details that are involved with aging parents. Most people deal with these issues once or twice in a lifetime. Our Elder Care Advisors help families with these issues every day. Let us help you. Just give us a call at (217) 726-9200 and ask to speak with an Elder Care Advisor today. You don’t have to be on this journey alone.
