Have you given any thought, or done any planning in case you need to care for an aging parent?
If you are like me, you never really gave it any thought until the moment came when the doctors said that it was Alzheimer's disease and that he would either need care at home, or to be placed in an extended care facility. I would never take back the decision to care for my father, but I do wish that I had put some forethought and planning toward a contingency plan. Have you and your family discussed what you would do in this situation?
No, we haven't. My parents died when I was a girl and my husband is estranged from his mother (very complicated of course). I do think about burdening my children, and it bothers me a lot. I would hate to interrupt their family life with my health issues.
yes! I was born in a family where in we always take care of out aging grandfather of grandmother, mother or father.
There was one time where in we talked about this with my parents, they are both working and wont be a problem in the near future but we are already making an arrangement.
there are 7 children in the family, I am the youngest and we talked about it before, who ever is near them and available she or he will be the one to live with them, then we divide the expenses, we open a bank account where in we are required to deposit money in case our parents needs them in the future. They have health care and they will have pension but we know that as days go by those pension wont mean anything, so we are preparing for it now. Those who are not married and with no kids are required to deposit double the said amount those who are married will pay half.
Just which nursing home would be better for them. Really not trying to be funny. What goes around comes around and those who have not, could not or would not be there for their children can't expect their children to be there for them.

(6 or more children per household) in the postmodern, 21st century United States, being fully cognizant of the fact that they will be subjecting their children to an extremely rudimentary and primitive socioeconomic living standard, even socioeconomic penury and poverty? Countless studies...
