Eventually you HAVE to talk about it! Avoiding the inevitable won’t solve anything. It’s not just the men that shut down. Women do it too! After all, we’re only human. Why are the important issues often the hardest to discuss?
Simple. Our feelings about the situation get in the way. Emotions cloud our better judgment. Or, funds are limited. Or we just don’t see a way out. That’s where I get involved – to facilitate strategies and solutions.
This post is inspired by the issues involved in caring for aging parents. I watched this video and think it can help a lot of friends out there. It’s great that celebrities Maria Shriver, Rob Lowe and others are helping others share this important message.
In particular those who have limited resources and are trying to maintain careers, educate their children and deal with their own health and housing issues. This group has been dubbed the “sandwich” generation, because they are in the middle of everything.
Not to mention, while caring for their own parents and children, they are often reminded that their own health and capital resources will decline in the future. Though it’s not for lack of caring or trying.
Fortunately, there is more to life than worry and stress. Solutions can be found to ease the strains on the resources and the relationships that come with caring for parents. This will allow everyone to remain open and able to love as they face life on life’s terms.
We can’t give Mom and Dad back their time or their health. But we can help maintain their dignity. This means taking the right step at the right time. With insurance, if you’re on time – you’re late! Wait until it’s too late, and … it’s too late. Long term care is a talk worth having now. Your future and theirs will thank you for it.
Yes, I do have information and access to insurance plans including long term care. But’s it’s not about me – its about you and yours.
