Caring For Aging Parents?
The Sandwich Generation is caught (sandwiched) between meeting the needs of their jobs, and families and helping aging parents. Does this sound like you? Earlier this week, I spoke with yet another person trying to juggle it all. I’m dedicating my next AT THE ISLAND WITH HELM to this topic! I’ll be sharing HELM's dos and don’ts and resources to help you from, "burning the candle at both ends," as my mom used to say!
Part of HELM’s 55 AND BETTER service is here to help with a variety of essential RIGHTSIZING resources which starts with an in-person conversation providing you with peace of mind so you can plan your next steps with confidence. Our upcoming e-newsletter will have links to our helpful checklists including:
✅HELM’s Tips for Talking to Parents About Housing Options
✅HELM’s Am I Ready to Move? If so Where, When, and How!
✅HELM’s Age in Place Home Safety Checklist.
