Aging Issues: Start the Conversation

October 8, 2020

Although the majority of those surveyed said they are comfortable discussing these important issues, the reality is they seldom do. The main reason mentioned: No one is starting the conversation.

So how and where do you start? Begin by thinking about the “what if's.” Some questions to get you started include:

What if I had a stroke and could no longer live alone? Where would I want to live? My home with help? With my family? Assisted living?
What if I developed significant memory loss? Who would I want to pay my bills? Help me make financial or medical decisions?
What if my mother had a heart attack and needed help? What in-home or community-based services could help? What can I do?
Next you start the conversation.
