Parenting the Parent: When Adult Children Care for Their Aging Parent

The first time you notice that something’s a little off with your parent can come as a shock. Maybe Mom suddenly becomes rude when you ask her if she needs help doing something. Or Dad refuses to discuss finances with you when you ask a polite, passing question. You may even brush it off, chalking it up to old age. But then, if that off-ness progresses to big red flags, like not remembering that they spoke to you yesterday, or they forget the directions to the store they visit every week, it starts to become more of a worry. 

Celebrating Mother’s and Father’s Day in Senior Living

Springtime is full of celebrations, both official and unofficial. If you have a mother or father in senior living, you may be wondering how to spend “their” day with them this year. If your parents are healthy and independent, it may be as simple as coordinating a dinner at his or her favorite restaurant. However, if your loved one is in senior living due to the need for assistance, skilled nursing or because of a cognitive decline like Alzheimer’s disease, it’s possible that Mom or Dad may not be able to get out for a special celebration.
