You can see it coming….
Yes, we see others getting old, but it never occurs to us that it will happen to OUR parents. Until, that is, when you recognize something is not quite right or you have to confront their life-altering illness or accident.
Then it hits home! They are not going to be around forever and you have to do something! But you begin to discover that it’s not as easy as you thought. Life gets really complicated, and end-of-life decline is hard on so many levels.
You may be worried about making the wrong decision that could negatively affect your parent’s health, lead them into a bad investment where they lose retirement funds, or worse, their home. Finding answers to your questions on what you think would be simple things just seems to take forever or go unanswered. You run into dead ends all the time. Friends and so-called experts don’t provide much help as they either haven’t been in the situation or offer platitudes to “do your best, you can make it work.”
Any decision you make, you second guess, and review the options endlessly. And worse, you feel all alone in this process. Furthermore, if your relationship with your parents hasn’t been ideal, there may be old hurts or even rifts with your siblings that might hinder the consensus or decisions that smooth the way forward. First, you may need to repair relationships to assure positive outcomes.
Elder Honor is here to help you through this and aid you in honoring your parents.
We will provide you tools that will help make that journey easier and give you confidence in making decisions. There will still be bumps in the road, but with our Caregiving Tool Kit Course or our One-on-Family coaching, you will be able to see many of them, slow down, and go over them better prepared.
We know that everyone learns in different ways. Some can take an online course, and complete it, while others need more support. Below are the ways you can connect with us to learn how to provide the best caregiving experience to your parents and affect change for generations to come.
Our first offering is the online Caregiving Toolkit Course. It offers a full set of tools and plans for you to learn and put into action, creating a well-thought-out and substantive caregiving plan for your parents. This course will help you with family communication, assessing the situation, finding care solutions, health decisions, estate planning, aging in place strategies, and end-of-life preparation. It is very comprehensive and provides documents, worksheets and recommendations for resources. For more information, look here.
