Start deciding your life plan for the last chapter of your life should you ever be dependent for cares such as: toileting, bathing, dressing, meals, transportation and medication management.

Ask yourself how you like to live: smaller setting vs. larger setting, one level living vs. elevators, socialization needs, privacy needs, will you want a pet to join you?

How soon should I start looking for living options during my elder years? 80, 90 etc.?

When you are concerned they are a vulnerable adult in jeopardy, remind your parent that aging does not mean they can’t still make decisions and that having a plan allows them to stay in control.
