However, in some cases, depending on the relationship we have with our parents or the circumstances involved, there can also be a lot of stress, guilt, and resentments related to such an experience.
In response to a reader sharing a touching story about taking care of her mother and then mother-in-law, Emily and I discuss the topic of dealing with aging parents and steps we can take to lessen the burden for our children as we age.
Topics in this episode:
- Nursing Home vs. Retirement Community vs. Assisted Living
- Are we obligated to take care of our parents?
- It’s OK to feel some guilt or resentment
- Legacy File / Legacy Drawer (next week we’ll share more about this and what it entails)
