One response to “Sandwiched: When You Worry about Your Aging Parents”

  1. Deya

    My parent’s (especially my Dad) have lived lives on the hippie side, now they are aging and dealing with a minimal amount of money for retirement (I assume though I have never talked to them exactly how much they have to work with). My Mom has arthritis which is worsening and an awful allergy to dust and pet hair. Living in a house in the woods, although it is very peaceful, does not do my mother well. I think moving from their home into something more manageable and less allergenic would help Mom but neither of them has talked about this to me. I worry about when I will need to step in and what exactly my role should be. We live about 8 hrs apart so I can’t physically be there very often. I just am not sure how to approach the subject and get an answer from them about their plans for the future.
