Aging Parents

Make plans before there's a health emergency

(HealthDayNews) -- Caring for aging parents is one of life's more difficult challenges. If your parents are approaching an age where they're likely become dependent on you, now's the time to plan -- before there's a crisis, suggests the Moses Taylor Hospital in Scranton, Penn.

Talk with them about their needs and concerns, such as:

  • Is it important for them to remain in the family house?
  • Where would they want to live if they can no longer manage by themselves?
  • Do they have life insurance, wills, advance directives? Do you know where this information is kept?
