Unfortunately, you are not able to turn back time. Your children are no longer the only parenting role you have. It is now including the care and decision making for your own parents. Role Reversal for aging parents is difficult for all concerned. It isn’t anything you prepared for or expected would happen to you. If you need a dose of growing up, elder care will make it happen whether you’re ready or not!
Our youth-centered society turns a blind eye to the unpleasant and inevitable reality that all of us age and die. This leaves both caregivers and care recipients unprepared. Learn how to open your heart to others without putting your own at risk.
