Elder Care Town Hall replay: What you need to know as your parents age
This week, New Jersey 101.5's Eric Scott led a conversation about one of the most difficult and complex transitions many adults ever face — the time when they take responsibility for caring for their own parents.
There are no shortage of questions to consider: Can my parent live alone? If not, should my parent live with me? Can I afford ongoing care? How do I know if and when my parent needs extra help? Is this just forgetfulness, or dementia? What rights do I have, and do they have? What help is out there?
Throughout the event, we aimed to help you navigate all of those, with assistance from medical professionals, attorneys, elder care specialists and others, both on-air and in a special online chat.
And see our ongoing series on Elder Care for more about the challenges facing families and the options before them.
