Transitions – New Progress

When we think about the future, we think about our children’s college education, wedding costs, retirement funds, and saving for our future. But there is one more thing we forget to include and that is having a care plan for our aging parent or loved ones. We only think about caring for them when it hits us between the eyes and at that point we scramble to balance our personal life, stretch our finances and struggle to find the resources that will help us.

We should have a clear understanding and an open dialogue to help loved ones age gracefully while maintaining their independence. We should discuss possibilities and prepare for practical changes without an abrupt disruption in the family dynamics. When we prepare and expectations are known, a peaceful environment is sustained.

The purpose of this workbook is to create a dialogue with aging loved one and begin thinking about how their life will be played out in order to care for them appropriately. This alleviates the sense of guilt, lessens the stress, a better balance with your own personal life and to know what they want. There are articles between the workbook pages on topics related to caring for an aging loved one. Community resources are listed in the back of the book if you need to reference them.

What is the Strategy?

To understand the wishes and desires of our loved ones

To understand one’s role and other family caregivers involved

To have legal, financial and other important documents ready

To understand the healthcare process and what they mean

To be knowledgeable of resources available
