Have You Been Thinking About
Taking Care of Your Parents?
Taking care of aging parents is a noble undertaking, but are you (and your parents) suited to the arrangement? It could enrich your relationship and the lives of everyone involved, or it could break your relationship.
Even in the most loving families, conflicts arise when two families are brought together under one roof (or two roofs close together)! Living in close proximity, issues that you never considered before crop up and tend to niggle. That niggle can easily develop into a huge problem. Beyond doubt, it's a big decision; arguably one of the biggest decisons you will ever make.
The bottom line is this:
There Are Things You NEED To Know
Taking The Plunge!
If you are like most other people, you
don't even know what you don't know!
...or where to go to find the questions to ask.
The question is, how do you get to know these things that you aren't even aware of yet?
You can learn the things to watch out for as well as read about actual experiences that will help you go forward with your eyes wide open.
Melanie Ambrose is not a social worker, nurse, or psychologist—she is probably much like you, a daughter who cared about her parents. She went through just what you are considering now.
Melanie lived with it—24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year—at close quarters for over ten years and another decade before that without the day-to-day in-your-face contact.
She knows about the reality of what you are contemplating better than anyone who hasn’t been through it. Not only that, but she cared for both her parents until they died at 88 and 93 respectively.
Realizing that most people make the decision to care for their parents without the consideration it deserves—recognizing that they will become old and frail and all that this entails—Melanie decided to write this book to help both children and their aging parents decide whether living together is a good idea.
Here are a few of the things that are covered in
Adopting Your Parents: What to Know Before Taking the Plunge:
- The first three questions you should ask yourself
- Pros and cons of adopting your parents
- Things that MUST be agreed BEFORE either you or your parents make any commitment.
- Important considerations looking to the future
- How about a trial period? Good idea or bad idea?
- Sharing the load with siblings
...financial, medical and transportation considerations and more.
This is a short book, just 108 pages. In it, Melanie packs a lot of worthwhile, practical information you can use, together with real-life stories of what she and her husband experienced when they cared for her parents. This content rich book also includes the stories of other people who've taken the same path.
