PART 2: TAKING CARE OF
AN AGING PARENT
with Tasha Baird-Miller
If you have aging parents or if you’ve lost a parent, you’ll understand when I say that caring for an ailing parent, watching your parent’s health fail, and ultimately saying goodbye to your parent is something that you can never fully prepare for and it’s never exactly how you imagined it to be.
It’s true when they say that at some point in your life, your role with your parents will change, and you will gradually and sometimes suddenly be taking care of them.
