Mom & dad are getting older - 3 simple steps to help you prepare

Statistics you may find surprising...

  • Every day in America 10,000 people are turning 60 years old.

  • Most adult children are completely unprepared to assist in caring for their folks.

  • Over 75% of caregivers are women. Ready or not, we are the ones who are stepping up and caring for our parents and in-laws.

  • 8 in 10 children very much want to be involved in their parent’s aging future, they just don’t know how.

  • 39% of caregivers end up leaving their careers to care for their loved one. Which was NOT part of their career plan.

I could go on and on with statistics from caregiving costs to declining health, but what I want to share is it doesn't have to be this way.

We are in a caregiving epidemic and the best thing you can do for yourself and your family is to prepare.

Be brave, start a conversation and create a plan. A plan based on your loved ones’ values, wishes and preferences. How?

Step 1: Talk about it.

Step 2: Write it down.

Step 3: Share it.

It's that simple.

Yes, it will be uncomfortable.

Yes, it may seem insurmountable.

Yes, if you wait you will most likely have regret.

Yes, you can do it!

We created our program because our family's caregiving crisis had such an adverse effect on every single aspect of our lives. No family should have to go through what we went through. Plan your story now and you won't have to.
