What it really means to care for both aging parents and kids
I'm reading this on a day when my mother suddenly got very sick and needed to be taken to the ER. The last time she went to hospital was 1995. Thankfully she's ok (a case of acute appendicitis, same day surgery and home resting). But my sisters and our husbands spent hours in the ER waiting room, talking about what's to come as we enter our prime family and career building years. Thank you for this practical list of discussions we need to have.
Excellent piece Deb - I'm dealing with all of this as well right now. It is wildly helpful and it validates a lot of how I've been feeling. Thank you for writing this. I'm so sad to hear you've been through this, and I appreciate the thought you've put into detailing this out so well.
Thank You for sharing the truth. We see success and often forego the background struggle.
+1 Going through this currently. AARP has great structured content to organize the plan. https://www.aarp.org/caregiving/
Deb, wow - your story has so many overlaps / parallels with my friend, Jessica Kim. I think you’d really enjoy getting to know each other, if you don’t know each other already. She was on a podcast recently telling her story: https://theideamaze.substack.com/p/jessica-kim-co-founder-and-ceo-of
