My grandmother always used to say “once an adult, twice a child”. She was referring to the fact that we start life dependent, and through the aging process, tend to end our life that way as well.
So, what happens when the grown-up “child” needs to become the caregiving adult in a relationship with an aging parent? It leads to many tough conversations about some pretty big topics. Recognizing that some conversations are not only difficult, but could cause relationship-changing outcomes, we created this video to give some pointers for handling the big ticket items adult children might encounter with their aging parents.
