Having the responsibility for the care of aging parents and relatives can be overwhelming and frustrating. Carving out time from your list of life’s responsibilities to add care for your elder can be stressful. How do you plan now so that, when the emergency happens, you and your elder are prepared? When do you start participating in your elder’s medical care choices? How do you keep your own stress levels manageable?
