“Whether you're a tech-savvy caregiver, a man or a woman, live near or far, or wherever you are in your journey -- from barely realizing you're in it to adjusting to life afterward -- you've got plenty of company. As former First Lady Rosalynn Carter... has noted, "There are only four kinds of people in this world: those who have been caregivers, those who currently are caregivers, those who will be caregivers, and those who will need caregivers."
The “Talk”. Unfortunately, there is no way around it. There will come a time when you and your senior parent(s) will need to have that awkward conversation. No one likes to discuss mortality or disability, but it is very important that you develop an open and trusting relationship with your parent(s) regarding their assets before they become ill or disabled.
