Book Plug – Tips For Helping Your Aging Parents (Without Losing Your Mind)
We’re rolling up on the holidays, that traditional time of year when people return to the land of their birth to help the elders in their lives with technology.
I kid, I kid.
But visiting parents (or other beloved elders) when you don’t see them face to face on a regular basis can start to be fraught as you realize they’re aging. This book is a good practical guide on steps you can take to help your parents (or other beloved elders) while preserving their autonomy and dignity. The steps can serve as jumping off points for deeper conversations with them during quieter moments (instead of trying to figure things out in the midst of a crisis). Sometimes, the best gift you can give is a bit of proactive thought and action.
