The holiday season has a way of reminding us of the swift passage of time. Whether it’s Christmas, Hanukkah, Thanksgiving, or any other celebration, these moments are about reuniting with family, cherishing the present, and reflecting on the future. For families with aging loved ones, it’s a poignant time that underscores the importance of planning for their future care.
As we gather to enjoy each other’s company, the need to create a plan of care for aging family members becomes increasingly evident. You start to notice the things your aging parent or grandparent struggles with as you observe them throughout the evening. Like struggling to hold a fork to eat, carrying a plate and glass of water to the table, or maybe not being able to remember the previous conversation you had with them in the living room.
