Unfortunately, so often, when crisis hits, families are caught unawares, Emergency situations are that much more scary without the proper planning. In terms of taking charge, adult children are blindsided by not knowing where to find critical and essential documents they need in order to decide on care for their elderly parents. Moreover, they feel handcuffed by not having access to important assets or documents they need. Fortunately, it is never too early to start that ‘just in case’ file. As such, our Essential Documents Workbook is ideal.
Holiday Time: An Opportunity to Organize
Holiday time is a wonderful time for family sharing and bonding. However, it is also an opportunity for adult children to help organize essential information for their elderly parents. In addition to feasting and spreading joy this holiday season, all of us, should use this time to get some ‘ducks in a row’. Whether we be seniors, caregivers or potential caregivers, we need to organize those all important documents and bits of information.
