Guidance for the
ageing parent years
Most of us prepare for significant life events, like buying a new home or having children, but too many of us fail to prepare for our parents getting old until a crisis strikes.
ELDERING is here to help you better transition to the ageing parent life-stage by sharing useful guidance, information and practical resources addressing a range of common issues, from supporting your parents to stay safe and healthy to helping manage their finances, arrange care and deal with family dynamics.
When your parent starts dipping into old age and displaying signs of vulnerability, the realisation of the challenges that lie ahead can be overwhelming.
Although getting old is inevitable, ideally we want our ageing parents to keep their independence and stay active, happy and healthy for as long as possible.
Safety & Care
It’s common to feel concerned or even anxious about our parent’s safety as they get older and more vulnerable – particularly if they’re living on their own.
Family & Carer Stress
As our parent starts to lose their independence and decisions need to be made, life can become incredibly frustrating, worrying and stressful.
Financial & Legal
The financial and legal aspects that come with having ageing parents can be the most daunting and difficult to discuss and deal with.
