Ep 165: Preparing for Aging Parents
[et_pb_text _builder_version=”4.2.2″ text_font=”Century Gothic||||||||” header_font=”Flawless||||||||” header_font_size=”42px”]
Today we are joined by my IRL friend, Gail who graciously shares her story of losing her mother, then watching her active father’s health decline soon after. She talks about the emotional toll it took on her and her sisters, each of their families, and what it was like switching roles from daughter to caregiver.
Gail shares will all of us the information she wished she had known in order to be better prepared: everything from health proxies, to power of attorney, and making sure your Will is updated.
We can’t truly prepare for death, but there are steps we can take to help ease the burden of financial and legal hurdles that compound an already stressful situation.
I appreciate Gail’s honesty and vulnerability during our conversation and I hope you do too. Before we started recording, she turned to me and said “If I can help one person feel more prepared than sharing my story is worth it.”
